Le Phare de Longueuil (The Lighthouse) presents a travelling visual arts exhibition entitled Mamo (which in Atikamekw means: together) from November 18 to December 2. This exhibition brings together the works of 14 Christian artists from across Quebec. It addresses current hot topics such as violence, climate change, welcoming refugees and relationships with the First Nations.

Through the 24 paintings presented, the artists invite visitors to live an artistic and human immersion experience that is at the heart of the realities of yesterday, today and tomorrow. “Mamo invites us to develop understanding and compassion towards our brothers and sisters facing various difficulties.

Visitors will have access to a pilgrimage booklet to guide them on their journey, raising questions about the meaning of the works, their significance and the effect they have on them. A meeting room will be available for visitors who wish to discuss their experience.

The exhibition is open to the public on weekdays between 10 am and 4 pm. Visits are also possible in the evenings between 5:00 and 8:00 pm and on weekends between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm, by reservation. Reservations are required for groups.
