(English follows)

Le Centre francophone Hamilton (CFH) est un centre pluridisciplinaire et inclusif qui fait la promotion de la langue française et nourrit le sentiment d’appartenance à la francophonie à travers des expériences sociales, culturelles et artistiques. Le CFH diffuse les arts depuis sa constitution en société en 1971. La programmation artistique du CFH offre à Hamilton et sa grande région  de réelles occasions pour apprendre, pour se divertir, pour vivre et pour s'épanouir en français, sans distinction de la langue maternelle. Il offre aussi des occasions de diffusions dans les meilleurs conditions professionnelles pour le milieu artistique. Nous utilisons le produit artistique comme un catalyseur du dynamisme de la communauté et un outil fédérateur de celle-ci. Notre responsabilité est triple:

1- Produire et développer le talent local en appuyant les artistes de la région et en stimulant la fibre artistique du plus jeune âge : programmes parascolaires dans le milieu immersif, diffusion de groupes émergents à la FrancoFEST, occasions de rencontres avec les artistes de nos programmations, ateliers animés par des artistes locaux durant nos camps.

2- Développer l’auditoire et créer des habitudes de consommation : camp des arts, concerts gratuits, cours artistiques, club de lecture, randonnées, ateliers, appui à la radio communautaire francophone et les médias sociaux.

3- Diffuser le produit artistique et favoriser l’employabilité des artistes ainsi que les professionnels d'appui artistique: recrutement de talents locaux, rétention d'équipe de production et logistique, spectacles scolaires, commanditer des spectacles lors des grands festivals anglophones.

Centre francophone Hamilton (CFH) is a multidisciplinary and inclusive center that promotes the French language and nurtures a sense of belonging to the Francophonie through social, cultural and artistic experiences. CFH has been programming arts since its incorporation in 1971. CFH offers Hamilton residents and people living in its greater region, real opportunities to learn, to be entertained, to live and to flourish in French, regardless of their mother tongue. It also offers broadcasting opportunities in the best professional conditions for the artistic community. We use the artistic product as a catalyst for the dynamism of the community and a unifying tool for it. Our responsibility is threefold:

1- Present and develop local talent by supporting artists in the region and stimulating the artistic streak of the youngest age: extracurricular programs in immersive environments, presentation of emerging artists at FrancoFEST, opportunities to meet artists from our programs, workshops led by local artists during our camps and in schools.

2- Develop the audience and create consumer habits: arts camp, free concerts, art classes, book and movie club, school and community workshops, support for French-language community radio and social media.

3- Showcase artistic products and promote the employability of artists as well as artistic support professionals: recruitment of local talent, retention of production and logistics teams, school shows, sponsoring shows at major English-language festivals.
