Théâtre Aphasique has overseen Des paroles dans le vent for many years. This group is a social integration project that works with people with aphasia through visual arts and dance.

This project encourages participants

  • to develop greater independence;
  • to develop a collaborative network with artistic resources within the community;
  • to increase new areas of expression;
  • to socially interact by taking part in various creation activities;
  • to further gain confidence in their capabilities;
  • to raise awareness about aphasia with people in touch with the group and talk about the daily effects of the disease; and
  • to raise awareness among workers and the public about allowing people with aphasia to express themselves and take advantage of social participation.
