An open letter from the MMFA for HSD 2020

Perseverance under the banner of arts and culture

For HSD 2020, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Culture pour tous, the UQAM faculty of arts, and the Commission scolaire de Montréal have signed an open letter in La Presse to emphasize the role and added value of teaching arts and culture:

“What if our society already had the tools at hand to fight the dropout problem? Engaging in the arts and interacting with culture promote success and reduce dropout rates. They allow young people to express themselves, share, create, and become more engaged citizens.”
