Fondation Cité de la Santé

Dans l’arc-en-ciel

The Cité de la Santé Foundation and Cirque Éloize have worked together to implement a collaborative, promising and unifying project to highlight the colossal work, commitment, dedication and all the humanity of health workers in our CISSS and CIUSSS, who have been struggling on a daily basis, and have been doing so for several weeks, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dans l’Arc-en-ciel project is a series of 30 video clips lasting 2 to 4 minutes, designed and produced in collaboration with five hospital foundations in Greater Montreal.

These videos salute the journey of women and men from the health and social services sectors who, through their contribution, have stood out in their work environment and have become a source of inspiration for their peers. Each of the videos will highlight the daily life of a health worker; each is therefore unique and personalized. Depending on their profile and interests, each of these people is associated with a personality from the arts and entertainment or sports world. These capsules deliver a daily message of comfort and encouragement to all health network personnel as well as their relatives and friends who support them on a daily basis.

A major project to support and recognize the role of our healthcare workers as we face an unprecedented crisis.


A unique collaboration between Foundations

Dans l’Arc-en-ciel unites 5 hospital foundations of the Greater Montreal area.

Sharing the warmth, not the virus!
