While Having Soup | Les Temps d’une Soupe
Date and time
City Square Plaza
Offered in English and French.
Common Weal Community Arts presents Le Temps d’une Soupe by Montreal artist collective ATSA (When Art Takes Action). Public are invited to participate in this relational artwork by sharing in conversation around relevant social issues While Having Soup. The event is documented and screened in real time as poetic portraits; photographs that capture the participants and reflect their conversations. The project has been running in locations across Canada and abroad since 2015, most recently in Mauritius, Madagascar, and France.
This work is presented thanks to local community partners, SaskCulture, Regina Downtown Business Improvement District, Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, the Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Québec, and the Programme d'appui à la Francophonie Canadienne.

Common Weal Community Arts
Common Weal Community Arts is a provincial arts organization that collaboratively engages professional artists with communities to promote social change and cultural identity through creative expression.
We strive to inspire ideas and empower people to tell their stories in their own voices. Place, shared identity, or interest may define the participating communities, the majority of which are marginalized, underserved, or historically misrepresented. Our projects are diverse in artistic discipline and approach including elements of traditional practice, site-specific work, residency and workshop activity, high profile events, and critical discourse on socially-engaged and community- based arts.
