Francophones outside Quebec: Indicators of artistic vitality
Hosted by the FCCF (Fédération culturelle canadienne-française)
This French-language presentation examined indicators of artistic vitality among Francophones outside Quebec, drawing on two main sources: data on artists from the 2016 census; and data on arts participation from the 2016 General Social Survey. The presentation included two engaging question-and-answer sessions. Participants from the FCCF (Fédération culturelle canadienne-française) were particularly interested in the details of how the census counts of artists are likely to be low, mainly due to the counting only of artists who worked more at their art than in any other occupation during the census reference week in May of 2016.
