Multidisciplinary artist Véro Leduc comes from Tiohtià:ke | Mooniyang | Montréal and has been living in Morin-Heights since 2021, where she follows her artistic practices in her studio while also engaging in various projects in Quebec and internationally. Her main practices include video, painting, performance, and deaf music.

Trained as a self-taught artist, Leduc's artistic approach is shaped by several postures, including that of deconstruction, which could be briefly defined as a practice stemming from a critical standpoint aimed at understanding – or even demonstrating – the social construction of a method or viewpoint. By challenging the foundations of dominant constructions, deconstruction allows her to explore alternative ways of perceiving the world and innovate in her artistic practice. Her work touches on several themes, such as deafness (living as a deaf person) and becoming (the possibilities on the horizon of our dreams of individual and collective transformation).

Since 2004, her works have been exhibited in North America and internationally, including in Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, Mexico, Portugal, and Japan. In 2023, she was awarded the first Akimoto Yuji Award at the Diversity in the Arts exhibition in Japan, following an international selection from among 2250 artworks.

Véro is also a professor at the Faculty of Communication at the Univeristy of Québec in Montreal, where she teaches in the program of Disability and Deafness, which she co-founded, as well as in the cultural action program. Holding the Canada Research Chair in Deaf Cultural Citizenship and Cultural Equity Practices, her work focuses on the artistic practices of people with diverse disabilities (deaf, disabled, neurodivergent, and psychodivergent individuals), deaf music, and cultural equity practices. In 2020, she received the Governor General's Medal in Canada for her meritorious work in breaking down barriers to social exclusion and enhancing accessibility to university and culture for deaf and hearing-impaired people.

Her projects and practices are articulated through research-creation processes and critical, feminist, queer, intersectional, crip, and deaf perspectives.
