Support the creation of the Green space: art and care

For two years now, LA SERRE – arts vivants and the Centre de psychologie Gouin (CPG) have been working together to create a unique network of art and care. In the course of their exchanges, the partners have imagined together the development of a Green space: art and care, conducive to the development of cross-disciplinary initiatives and open to neighbouring communities, LA SERRE artists and CPG patients. Activities in partnership with the neighborhood organizations that the CPG supports, artistic presentations by LA SERRE, cross-sector encounters, cultural mediation workshops and much more to happen in this new space.

The Centre de psychologie Gouin and LA SERRE – arts vivants are therefore appealing to your generosity to make this idea a reality: finance the materials, plants and labor; look forward to its official opening in May 2024!

GOAL: $18,000


+ Shared values of hospitality, solidarity, creativity, development, eco-responsibility and knowledge sharing

+ Involvement in the life of the neighbourhood 

+ Offering a stimulating and unifying work environment to our respective teams and communities

Would you like to help build the Green space?


Our goal is to encourage residents, artists, caregivers and patients to facilitate collaboration and to bond through networks, partnerships, human and material resources of both organizations. In addition to stimulating neighbourhood life with a range of activities and creating meeting spaces with the community, the Green space will enable us to concretely link our two areas of expertise: art and care. The Centre de psychologie Gouin and LA SERRE – arts vivants are therefore appealing to your generosity to make this idea a reality: finance the materials, plants and labor; look forward to its official opening in May 2024!

Located in the current parking area, the meeting zone will provide a place to meet and exchange ideas. Built on a wooden platform, with a pergola, table and benches, and a planting area for a tree, this space is designed to be friendly and welcoming. Ideal for cultural mediation activities, it will l bring life and greenery to our parking lot!

Located on the existing grass area, the contemplative zone is intended to be more intimate, surrounded by an edible garden, medicinal plants and sacred herbs. A space for individual work, reflection and rejuvenation after a therapeutic session, a creative residency or a work session. We envision a central wooden platform and seating furniture, surrounded by three mounds of planted vegetation that will also welcome the neighbourhood and our respective communities. Multiple possibilities for programming on this platform, which doubles as an outdoor stage: cross-sector encounters, cultural mediation, workshops with our partners, artistic presentations and more!
