Cultural Experiences "en Français"
L'ACFM AU FESTIVAL / THE ACFM AT THE FESTIVAL
« L’ACFM au Festival » is a cultural crossroads showcasing emerging talented youths and adults within the context of the Festival du Voyageur (FdV). By way of this large-scale event, artists and artisans have the opportunity to promote their cultural diversity through song, music, danse and hand-crafted items. Through 19 cultural committees, the ACFM seeks to increase opportunities to promote the French language and culture as well as highlight rural communities. L’ACFM au Festival is also a great opportunity for emerging artists to perform and eventually “tour” in these communities. This activity is made possible by a longstanding parnership with the Festival du Voyageur and our local artists. Thanks also to a long tradition of support from Francofonds, rural talent is put on display at the Festival du Voyageur!
L’ACFM au Festival is scheduled for February 24th, 2018 in the "Bar de neige" Tent and shall cater to everyone, young and old.

RASSEMBLEMENT CULTUREL ANNUEL et AGA / ANNUAL CULTURAL GATHERING and AGM
The Annual Cultural Gathering is the meeting of the Franco-Manitoban Cultural Association Inc./Association culturelle franco-manitobaine, inc.’s (ACFM) members to share rural cultural and artistic development. The ACFM takes advantage of this meeting to bring itself up to speed regarding members’ needs and to hold its Annual General Meeting.
An Open Mic session allows one representative from each cultural committee to take the floor and share his or her committee's accomplishments and innovations from the past year.
Also, the hosting committee is invited to highlight its community’s talents by organizing an evening of performances. All this work serves to keep our culture alive and interesting in order that our young francophone and francophile families, adolescents, adults and elders can benefit from our beautiful culture in their rural communities. This Annual Gathering is rich and filled with good networking opportunities.
Next one's date and host committee coming soon! Stay tuned!
