Saint-Boniface célèbre (en)

This year, our annual francophone celebration event, la Saint-Jean-Baptiste, will be part of a bigger party called Saint-Boniface célèbre.

Here are the events occuring on June 21 and 22 :

 

THU JUNE 21

Screening of the film At the heart of Manitoba’s Francophone community

Antoine Gaborieau hall / free

From the French explorer Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de La Vérendrye’s first visit to the Red River in 1738, to the vibrant, exciting Francophone communities peppered across our province today, this narrative is still being written in a most colorful way. The film explores the trials, tribulations, determination, achievements and the joie de vivre of a community once expected to fade into the history books but has nonetheless persevered and is thriving today.

Screenings in french at 6 pm and 8 pm. Screenings in english at 7 pm and 9 pm.

Discover the new exhibit at CCFM’s art gallery

 

The Centre culturel franco-manitobain’s visual arts gallery will welcome a new exhibit from May 24 to August 2, called Perspective Survolée – A Bird’s Eye View, by Françoise Ségard.

Using drawings and encaustic painting (beeswax and pigments), the Montreal artist creates works like imaginary maps, to be observed from all angles to seize its nuances.

At a time where technology enables us to see the Earth from the sky in no time (Google Earth, GPS, drones), what are we really looking at when we observe lands from above? And what do we see when we get closer?

Displayed on the walls and on the floor, A Bird’s Eye View presents a reflection on the different ways we perceive a territory, both as an abstract and living entity at the same time.

 

The opening will take place on Thursday May 24th, at 5 pm in the CCFM’s art gallery, with the artist.

From May 22nd to 25th, as part of this exhibit, there will also be art workshops for kids aged 5 to 12, with the artist.
