New exhibit: Fable of the decline

Stéphanie Morissette, “Fable du déclin”

Du 10 octobre au 5 décembre dans la galerie d’arts du CCFM

 

 

 

Take a walk into a dark and bizarre forest made of paper…
Fable of the decline tells the story of a metamorphosis: the evolution of Nature as humans come into contact.

What impact do our activities have on animals and their habitat?
With a twist of black humour, Stéphanie Morissette questions our relationship with the environment, and shines a light on the consequences of our lifestyle.

 

Opening night: Friday, October 12

 

Come meet the artist, play a “seek and find” game and join us to create your own paper animal… All are welcome!

Luc de Larochellière live at the CCFM!

30th ANNIVERSARY TOUR OF “AMÈRE AMERICA”

 

 

“Si fragile”, “Amère America”, “Cash City”, “Chinatown blues”… The list could go on, of all the songs that made Luc Delarochellière one of the most influental Québécois singer-songwriters of his generation.
Since 1988 when he released the critically-acclaimed Amère America (at only 22 years old!), the musician kept reinventing his music album after album. To celebrate “Amère America”‘s 30th anniversary, Luc de Larochellière tours around Canada, playing the entire album live!

New exhibit: Manitoban inspirations

MANITOBAN INSPIRATIONS: SELECTED WORKS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

 

 

August 26 to September 5 at the CCFM visul arts gallery

Curated by Emilie Lemay

 

“Since 1974, the Centre culturel franco-manitobain offers high calibre visual art exhibitions that present the work of artists from coast to coast. Many francophone artists of Manitoba are brought to the forefront and participate in our communities’ dialogues about identity.

The artworks we present today were created by people from around here and are figureheads of the permanent collection that CCFM acquired over the years. From historical portraits to contemporary paintings by way of Metis legend illustrations, these creations call to mind changeable socio-political realities of past decades.

The cultural diversity and values that these images convey are part of our collective memory. We invite you to be inspired by them in order to revisit our history and to look at current representations of our society with a critical eye.

Let the memories and discoveries begin!”

Looking back on 2017-2018…

… We must say, this was an incredible, busy, funny year. We had 5 exhibits with artists from all over Canada, we had some games screened at the CCFM for the first time (the Winnipeg Jets in playoff series and more recently the FIFA World Cup), we danced like crazy or chilled with about 50+ gigs (Mardi Jazz, Coups de coeur francophone)… And a lot of new memories.

Here are some pictures of what we thought were the highlights of this year.

Thanks to all of you for coming down at the CCFM, and see you in September!

Highlights of FIFA World cup at CCFM

Five games of francophone teams were screened in Antoine-Gaborieau Hall from June 15 to 25.

It was great to see people of different age, different nationality and background coming to the CCFM to see/support their team – some of them even took part in Envol 91 FM radio shows!

This is what makes soccer magic. Thanks to all for coming!
