Collaboration & Partnership
There are many ways for collaboration and we believe that a stronger society is based on partnerships no matter their expertise as long as they share the same core values. Here some goals to look forward to :
- we want to contribute and offer more opportunities for activities that gather communities in French whether it’s a show, a festival, a workshop, a conference etc.
- we are also excited about sharing what we have been learning since 1945 and learning from other organizations to empower our respective communities;
- we believe that partnership brings more visibility to both or multiple partners as it reinforces their legitimacy;
- and finally, we are part of a society we want to see flourish with more togetherness, diversity as well as inclusion in all ways and that includes providing a safe space for anyone to evolve in French or to practice their French if it is a second language.
