For a newspaper, a centennial anniversary is synonymous with innovation, determination and passion. La Liberté has planned a series of showcase events to celebrate this remarkable achievement. Here’s a quick overview.
Join us for an unforgettable 100th anniversary!
Les Productions Rivard is preparing a documentary for Société Radio-Canada to mark La Liberté’s 100th anniversary and its key role in the community.
The aim of the Gala is to raise awareness, among Anglophones and Francophones alike in a playful and artistic way, of the history of Manitoba’s French-speaking community and the heritage passed on to us by the newspaper’s various players from 1913 to today.
The La Liberté collection from 1913 to the present day will be digitized. This will allow for instant keyword searches of the newspaper’s entire collection using one of the most sophisticated tools in the country.
In the spirit of a true neighborhood festival, the celebrations take place in an atmosphere of music, food and friendship. There will be plenty to entertain all participants, young and old.
La Liberté will hold a national, bilingual, symposium on journalism in 2013. It will take place at the University of Saint-Boniface. Approximately 200 participants are expected.
An exhibition retracing the history of La Liberté and of the Francophone community of Manitoba through the newspaper’s media coverage will run from June 2013 to May 2014. The stationary exhibition will be on display in the Salon Empire at the Centre du patrimoine in St. Boniface.
The association of Centenary newspapers of Canada/Journaux centenaires du Canada (CNC/JCC) has for mission to encourage Canada’s oldest newspapers to share and celebrate their most innovative ideas.
