On November 5, Roger Sinha won the 2018 Charles-Biddle Award, national and international scene. A second prize was awarded this year for the local scene to Patsy Van Roost, a multidisciplinary Belgian artist who creates opportunities for socializing in their own neighborhoods, and the “jury’s favorite” goes to André Michel, painter, sculptor and an ethnographer of French origin. The bronze and granite sculptures presented to the laureates are an accomplishment by Danielle Thibeault, a Trois-Rivières artist.
This award recognizes the exceptional contribution of people who have immigrated to Quebec and whose personal or professional commitment contributes to the cultural and artistic development of Quebec. Through their achievements, these women and men are models of success, both in their field and for Quebec society as a whole.
Presented at the launch of the Quebec Week of Intercultural Encounters (SQRI), Culture pour tous and the Ministry of Immigration, Diversity and Inclusion, La Fabrique Culturelle presented two video clips introducing all three nominees by category.
