  • Canada Chizé 2èmes Rencontres internationales d'art contemporain de Chizé

  • (Chizé, France)
    Applicant organization: Comité d'animation et des fêtes de Chizé

  • Champlain

    (Sillery, Canada)
    Applicant organization: Editions du Septentrion
    Description: At the invitation of the Canadian federal government, a group of historians has set about studying the various aspects of Champlain’s life. About 30 of these historians gathered at a symposium in September 2002. For 2004, the team intends to collect an extensive body of material on “Champlain and his times,” which will result in the publication of an impressive work of some 400 pages. The project will shed light on a number of little-known aspects of early French North America.

  • Colloque international et pluridisciplinaire: Adaptation et innovation: expériences acadiennes

    (Poitiers, France)
    Applicant organization: Institut d'Etudes Acadiennes et Québécoises (IEAQ)
    Description: In 2004, on the occasion of Acadia’s 400th birthday, we propose a scientific look at the innovative experiments that Acadians were able and even forced to develop in order to adapt, while maintaining their distinctive way of life. “[translation] We are appealing to you again because our conference has been formalized as the ‘Annual conference of the Association Française d'Etudes Canadiennes.’ This prestigious name gives new scope to the project, but also presents financial challenges if we want the event to be an outstanding project of the Canada-France 2004 celebrations. Since our regular financial partners have already been approached, we must make a second appeal for funding, which we hope you will grant.”

  • Commémoration du 400e anniversaire de la signature par Henri IV de la Commission de Pierre Dugua de Mons

    (Paris, France)

The letter of Commission appointing Dugua de Mons the “Lieutenant Governor of Acadia” is the founding act of Acadia and French Canada. Consequently, the Amitiés Acadiennes will commemorate this historic date on Saturday, November 8, 2003, in the Salle des Colonnes, Château de Fontainebleau, in the presence of its members and a large Canadian delegation that will come for the event.

Through literature, cinema and art, the project will help strengthen dynamics with various partners interested in the Acadian fact, by introducing Acadian artists into the French-Canadian literature course, through invitations to writing workshops and by introducing Acadian works into the research activities of literature students.

  • Promotion des activités de recherche du PREFEN

    (Caen Cedex, France)
    Applicant organization: Centre de recherche d'histoire quantitative - Université de Caen

  • Symposium international d'artistes français et acadiens: "Déplacement"

    (Poitiers, France)
    Applicant organization: Comité des Amitiés acadiennes de la Vienne
    Description: The theme of this symposium of artists connected with the Acadian fact is “movement.” The project is linked with the “innovation and adaptation: Acadian experiments” conference. We are proposing a gathering of 10 artists—five Acadians and five Poitevins—as part of a symposium where traditional arts (painting, sculpture) meet contemporary arts (video, photographs). The works will stay in Poutou, in key locations of the Acadian fact. Movement is a strong dynamic in Acadian development, and it is expected to continue to nourish the cultural exchanges that are so indispensable to multidimensional partnerships from region to region, such as those between Poitou and the province of New Brunswick. This event will also be the first response to four consecutive years of participation by Poitevin artists in the Caraquet visual arts festival. An agreement is being negotiated with the Caraquet visual arts festival.

  • Traduction et production: Annales du Patrimoine de Fécamp-Cahier #10 sur le French Shore

    (Saint-Jean, Canada)
    Applicant organization: Fédération des Francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador
    Description: As part of the celebrations organized for 2004, the Association Fécamp-Terre-Neuve and Society 2004 join forces to co-publish book #10, dealing exclusively with the French fishery on the Newfoundland coasts, a specific right that France did not give up until 1904. A dozen feature articles will retrace the history of the French Shore, life on the French Shore at the time of the fishery and the French Shore today. The book’s goal is to provide French and Canadian readers with a comprehensive and completely new document on this little-known aspect of the ties that link France and Canada. Translation of the book will enable Newfoundland residents to benefit from the information in the book, which will become an archival document, an educational tool and a high-quality cultural and tourist product.
