The Seeing Voices Montreal executive team attended the 2014 Power of the Arts conference hosted by the Michaelle Jean Foundation. The theme was "Acting Now For Social Change". ASL interpretation was available throughout the whole conference, big kudos to the organizers for making it accessible to everyone! We met the Honorable Michaelle Jean, David Codling from the British Council, and many inspiring artists! Thank you to all the participants and the presenters, we learned a lot from the workshops.
