books & ideas / events / EDMONTON - The francophone European presence in Western Canada

The 150th anniversary of the Canadian confederation provides a unique opportunity to rediscover the distinctive contribution of the French-speaking European communities (Belgian, French, and Swiss) to the material, intellectual, and spiritual history of Canada.

This event will highlight their forgotten legacy through various academic and community activities, including a conference bringing together Canadian and European scholars, a public performance by French artist Frédérique Bruyas and Canadian artist Louise Ladouceur, a round table on French language acquisition from a Canadian and European perspective, a pop-up museum, and a poster exhibition.
