About the Artist

Janie Renée is a Franco-Ontarian multidisciplinary and creative artist and songwriter. She has been delivering workshops for over 30 years. She offers writing and drama programs, helping participants to develop their skills by introducing them to the essentials of creation, production, and stage performance. On stage, she is often found partnering with musicians from different backgrounds as she is particularly fond of jazz and polyrhythm. Behind the scenes, she lends her pen to numerous projects for young and old, and is a fan of cultural mediation of all kinds. Her experience in adapting quickly to various groups makes her an outstanding collaborator for teachers.

The arts educator transmits knowledge, shares know-how and welcomes the development of the participants' self-knowledge. We look for independence of expression. Creation, in its simplicity and diversity, engages and expresses everything.
