Arts & Culture

In order to achieve its charitable purposes in support of the population, the Makwa Foundation contributes to several activities to the appreciation of arts and crafts. 


Development camp for the Orchestre symphonique des jeunes de l'Outaouais

Every year, the Orchestre symphonique des jeunes de l'Outaouais organizes a weekend camp at SAJO (Service animation jeunesse Outaouais). This year, for the first time and thanks in part to the support of the Makwa Foundation, two camps are being organized: the first in June 2023 and the second in November 2023. The intensive weekend is divided into three parts: sectional rehearsals on Saturday, orchestra rehearsals on Sunday, and free time filled with fun, fun and more fun!

Symposium d’art in situ, Imagine, sow, harvest

The Symposium d'art in situ is a biennial artistic event coordinated by the Centre d'action culturelle de la MRC de Papineau and supported by numerous partners, including the Makwa Foundation. This creation and dissemination initiative showcases professional artists invited to create works of public art, outdoors and in front of an audience, in a village of the MRC de Papineau. The event's overarching theme, linked to the identity of the host municipality, gives impetus to the artists' creative process, and offers the public a key to appreciating and reading the works.
