As part of its Fleur de lys, fleur de thé component, the Festival Accès Asie was proud to participate in the 10th season of La Vieille Usine, in Gaspésie! From September 5th to 8th, the team took place at l'Anse-à-Beaufils for four days of program in visual arts, dance, music and cultural mediation.

In collaboration with


Festival des traditions du monde de Sherbrooke


From August 8th to 12th, 2018

Opening Wednesday, August 8th - 5pm

The Festival Accès Asie is proud to participate to the 21st edition of the Festival des traditions du monde de Sherbrooke (FTMS)! From August 8th to 12th, join us next to Palais de l’Orient for the exhibition Smile of Afghanistan, from the Iranian photographer Hamed Tabein.

Within our current globalized media landscape in which most depictions of Afghanistan and indeed the Middle East as a whole are colored with tragedy, Smile of Afghanistan serves as a poignant counterpoint that turns the focus, instead, on to the #oy and hope of everyday life in Afghanistan.

In partnership with Festival Rivières de Lumières, the exhibition is presented with the collaboration of Radio-Canada.
