Alexandra Tanguay-Verreault

May 2024

Born in Montreal, visual artist Alexandra Tanguay-Verreault lives in Sept-îles and works with communities in the Côte-Nord region. Through her artistic practice, she transforms a thirst for social change into a creative leitmotiv – interweaving politics, community organization, creativity, psychology, social work and, often, the long-term participation of community members. With a master’s degree in social work and a certificate in art therapy, her work is a philosophical reflection on the individual’s capacity for self-healing in the face of adversity.
