Art Entr'Elles

À la suite d’« Agir par l'imaginaire », un projet d’art communautaire initié en 2007 par la Société Elizabeth Fry du Québec en partenariat avec Engrenage Noir / LEVIER, des femmes ayant participé à ce projet, décidèrent à leur sortie de prison, de poursuivre l'exploration artistique. De cette volonté est née, en septembre 2009, le collectif Art Entr'Elles, enregistré comme un organisme à but non lucratif depuis 2011.

Depuis sa création, Art Entr’Elles a réalisé sept projets artistiques qui traitent de problématiques en lien avec l’incarcération, notamment la pauvreté systémique et la réintégration sociale des femmes judiciarisées dans la communauté. Il utilise l’art communautaire comme méthode de création qui réunit des artistes professionnels et des artistes communautaires (les femmes judiciarisées), dans un processus artistique collaboratif non hiérarchique.

Art Entr’Elles se définit comme un collectif de femmes artistes qui disent NON à la pauvreté, à la violence et à l’intolérance. Il encourage les réflexions critiques, favorise l’exploration et l’expression sociopolitique de ses membres et du public.


“Agir par l’imaginaire” is a community art project initiated in 2007 by the Elizabeth Fry Society of Quebec in partnership with Engrenage Noir / LEVIER. A small group of women who participated in this project - and wished to pursue their artistic exploration -  founded in 2009 an art collective named Art Entr'Elles (registered as a non-profit organization since 2011).

Since its inception, Art Entr'Elles has carried out seven artistic projects that address the issues around incarceration of women, such as systemic poverty and social reintegration challenges. The collective uses community arts as a way to brings together professional and community artists (women with the living experience), in a non-hierarchical collaborative artistic process.

Art Entr'Elles is defined as a collective of women artists who say NO to poverty, violence and intolerance. It encourages critical reflection, creative exploration and sociopolitical expression of its members and the public.
