Project W, the show | A seventh edition all new
In a few days, Project W – The show will amaze you with its brand new concept. Unlike previous years, when the W project offered an evening in the form of a fashion show, this spring’s event will focus on Abenaki cultural richness through the fusion of the various talents of the Abenaki. In addition, participants of all ages will be on stage to present performances inspired by the traditions of their Nation. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
It is at the Nicolet Centre des arts populaires, on May 4, at 7 p.m., that members of the Abenaki communities of Odanak and Wôlinak will present the results of the work they have accomplished over the past few weeks. Whether it is through an art exhibition, a video or a performance of traditional dance, song or drumming, everything that will be presented during this evening will testify to the pride that participants show in the cultural richness of the Abenaki nation.

During this evening, the public can expect a unique experience thanks to what the W project team has reserved for them. Whether it is through the tribute dedicated to the elders or through the colourful performances that will be presented to them throughout the evening, spectators will undoubtedly be amazed to see the extent of Abenaki talent. As Marc-Olivier O’Bomsawin, co-lead of Project W, points out, “the purpose of this event is to ensure that people in the region can witness not only the talent of the participants, but also their strong feelings of belonging and pride felt through their involvement in this project. »
“Thanks to the W show and the positive values it conveys, the communities of Wôlinak and Odanak have the opportunity to shine at the regional level,” says Michel Thibeault, Director of Social Services and co-responsible for the W Project.
Tickets are currently in pre-sale at a cost of $8 at the Waban-Aki Nation Grand Council office, Wôlinak and the Odanak family room. It will also be available at the door on the evening of the parade for $10.
This project is an initiative of the First Nations Child and Family Service (FNCFS) of the Grand Council of the Waban-Aki Nation in collaboration with the Health Centres and Band Councils of Odanak and Wôlinak.
