    Semaine de la Francophonie (Francophonie Week)

    Formerly known as La Semaine Francaise or French Week, this creative placemaking summit is returning to Arnaudville with a series of mini-conferences with subjects such as tourism, environmental sustainability, economic and social development, government, education, and folklife traditions. The summit brings together the expertise of internationally respected scholars, artists, scientists, cultural citizens and organizations. Attendees represent Louisiana and the Brittany region of France for the purpose of critical discourse on creativity imperatives and processes. Each day brings a new experience, and with each, a deeper understanding of purpose, benefits and methods for job creation within a cultural economy. LSF also includes an educational component geared toward high school students. 

    The last two days of the conference are reserved for a party, the 13th Annual Le Feu et L'Eau (Fire and Water) Rural Art Celebration, featuring a multitude of artists, performers, and cultural workers in a variety of disciplines and genres. Participate in cooking demos, and watch feature films. Hear live music, listen to poetry and shop local art vendors. It is a truly unique French Louisiana celebration.   

    The first two days of the summit will be held in Baton Rouge to cover the policy and advocacy component. Conference participants present to state legislators and attend public displays and projects representing programs supportive of arts and culture. On the 13th participants will gather in Arnaudville where the remainder of the program will be conducted. 

    NUNU Arts & Culture Collective and various locations throughout Arnaudville | Admission to the conference is $10 a day which includes lunch
