On April 30, 2020, L’Arche Canada launched a 48-hour “Quarantune Challenge”. 209 submissions from 28 L’Arche communities in 8 countries playing 29 instruments produced this spectacular collection of sounds from L’Arche’s choir of hope! Featuring “Tiny Lights” by Coco Love Alcorn.

Across Canada and around the world, L’Arche creates communities of friendship and belonging. In L’Arche, people with and without intellectual disabilities live, work, learn, and grow together. L’Arche demonstrates that when persons with intellectual disabilities take their place at the table, they contribute to a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world for all.
