J’aime les mots 2023

Do you like memes? You’ll like J’aime les mots!

Journées de la culture invite young people in Quebec and the Francophonie to celebrate language and play with words. How? By creating original memes against the backdrop of more than a hundred works of art straight from the collections of the country’s major cultural institutions. Prints, photos, paintings, and artifacts of all kinds offer a playground of countless possibilities.

Who will be 2023’s ambassador of the activity? You’ll find out on Wednesday, June 7 at the official launch of J’aime les mots 2023!

We can already tell you that several new cultural partners will join the ranks and bring images with strong memetic potential to the students. Also, the activity will take place from Friday, September 29 to Friday, October 27, 2023, from one end of the country to the other.
