CréArt has merged its humanitarian mission with Les Petits Trésors foundation which, for the past 30 years is dedicated to promoting mental health among youth. An estimated 3 million Canadians (11.6%) aged 18 years or older reported having had a mood and/or anxiety disorder. Mood and anxiety disorders in Canada have been shown to have a major impact on the daily lives of those affected.

CréArt would like to offer a special thanks to Michel Phaneuf, honorary mentor to the event as well as our numerous collaborators – Nemrac, Leoarts et Agence Kokoye.
