The facade of the Open Door homeless shelter and drop-in centre will be lit up by MAPP MTL with a tribute to Raphaël Napa André for three nights from Feb. 11 to 13. André, who was homeless and spent many of his last days at the Open Door, passed away nearly a month ago after freezing to death near the shelter, which was closed overnight. André’s death sparked outrage and was one of the factors that contributed to the homeless being exempted from the Quebec curfew.
“This evening began the light projection in tribute to Raphaël Napa André. A unique work will be projected on the facade of Open Door for the next 3 evenings to highlight its history. Thanks to John Tessier and Annik Boivin for MAPP MTL for rich exchanges!”—Mayor Valérie Plante
