In this edition of the Innovations Podcast, Nicolas Hyatt met with Montreal’s C.A.R.E. Centre Director Olivia Quesnel and Artist in Residence Louise Campbell to discuss the new podcast project Stories of Care.

The C.A.R.E. Centre is a day program for adults with severe physical disabilities. For more than 30 years, C.A.R.E. has fostered a vibrant community, rich in history, sound and stories. Stories of Care is a groundbreaking podcast project that tells these stories, featuring interviews and sound samples created with and by CARE Centre clients, caregivers and families, and music composed and improvised for CARE Centre clients by musicians Louise Campbell, Amy Horvey and Tim Brady.

“Individuals with disabilities have so much to communicate and are very moved by sounds and music,” says Olivia Quesnel. “The opportunity for our non-verbal clients to work with artists and musicians to create podcasts and to tell their stories is exciting. This project enables those who often are not heard to express their thoughts and share their experiences.”

Stories of Care is produced by the C.A.R.E. Centre, Innovations en concert and Bradyworks, as part of Quebec’s “A School Hosts an Artist program” of “Culture in Schools”.

The Innovations Zine is made possible with the generous support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the SOCAN Foundation.
