Initiated in 2009 as a community art project, Art Entr'Elles is now a non-profit arts organization bringing together women in conflict with the law and professional artists in a collaborative artistic process.
The collective was initiated by women who participated in the AGIR par l’imaginaire project. AGIR took place in prisons between 2008 and 2011, at the initiative of the Elizabeth Fry Society of Quebec and Engrenage Noir / LEVIER.
Upon their release from prison, these women decided to pursue the artistic exploration they had begun in detention, and founded Art Entr'Elles. They identified it as: "a collective of women artists who say NO to violence, NO to poverty and NO to intolerance."
