Soutien aux initiatives artistiques et culturelles

This program funded by MELS focuses on cultural and artistic training abroad and gives students an opportunity to participate in a cultural exchange.

Both institutions will take turns at hosting an activity.

Over the next ten years, this program will focus on projects in the following areas, taking into account scheduled major events:

  • Urban planning, development or design
  • 3-D Animation and Multimedia
  • Fashion
  • Photography
  • Music
  • Cinema
  • Video
  • Fine Arts (sculpture, painting etc…)
