1. IntroductionThis feasibility study on the development of a network of Francophone performing arts presenters in Alberta was conducted by theRegroupement and background toartistique francophone de lAlberta(Francophone Artistic Assembly of Alberta),also known as the RAFA. the stud In May 2003, the members of the RAFA adopted the 2004-2009 five-year plan. This plan outlines the work to be accomplished in three areas: communication and coordination, funding and development assistance, representativeness and networking. In the area of communication and coordination, one of the priorities will be to coordinate and unite the efforts of stakeholders in the field of arts and culture in order to maximise the benefits. One of the main activities to achieve this result will be the implementation of a network of performing arts presenters. TheRéseau Cent Gains (AB+)was created in October 2003 and an official memorandum of understanding was developed to establish the structure and delimit the operation of the network. Thanks to the financial contribution of Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta, the RAFA launched this study in November 2003. The purpose of the study was to provide the network with a mechanism to strengthen its structure and provide guidance and stability throughout its developmental phase. We realise that some of the information collected will appear to fall outside the frame of reference of this study. However, since this study was the first consultation of the various communities of Alberta conducted by the RAFA since its creation in 2002, we felt it was appropriate to communicate all the information pertaining to the needs of the various stakeholders in matters of Francophone arts and culture collected for this study. This data will be reviewed by members of the Board of Directors subsequently. Finally, the RAFA and the consultant who conducted this study would like to thank all the presenters and community and school stakeholders who have participated in the consultation prtohcaensks  tbhye  cSoenctrréibuting their time and expertise. We would also like to tariat francophone of Alberta Community Development for funding the English translation of this document.   The information and data contained in this document were obtained through questionnaires and telephone interviews. Given the target groups, the questionnaires were developed in both French and English. The method of distribution of the questionnaire was left to each target group. In the majority of cases, the questionnaire was sent by mail. Five days after the mailing, a copy was sent by Internet or fax. This allowed the stakeholders to complete the questionnaire either electronically or by hand. Target groups had the choice to return the questionnaire by mail, by Internet or by fax. To collect as many questionnaires as possible, two follow-ups, either by telephone or by email, were made with each of the target groups.

4. TheRéseau Cent Gains (AB+) 
The groups targeted by the study are:  Albertas Francophone communities groups  Albertas Francophone and French immersion schools  presenters of Alberta  member organisations and agenciesAnglophone of Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta (ATAA)  Francophone networks of presenters in Canadian minority environments  Created in February 2002, the RAFA is a non-profit provincial organisation incorporated as the official representative of Francophone organisations working in the field of arts and culture in Alberta.  3.1. Its Vision To unite Francophone organisations in order to further develop and advance the arts in Alberta, thereby contributing to the promotion of the various cultural expressions in the French language. 3.2. Its Mission To foster artistic development, mainly by promoting the union of the different Alberta organisations and stakeholders involved in the arts. 3.3. Its Mandate  To represent Francophone arts regionally, provincially, nationally and internationally.  To ensure artistic development by supporting creation, training, promotion and dissemination initiatives.  To act as an effective pressure group in expressing our positions and defending our jurisdictions by promoting the principle of equity with respect to Francophone representation.  To describe situations and ensure the follow-up to decisions taken by one group or another by transmitting the information to members.   TheRéseau Cent Gains (AB+)was established in October 2003 as the network of Francophone performing arts presenters in Alberta. At the same time, its structure was defined through an official memorandum of understanding and a working committee was established. At the May 2004 annual general meeting, members of the RAFA adopted a motion making the networks ad hoc committee a permanent committee of the organisation.  4.1. Its Vision To develop and establish a framework and create an environment conducive to the dissemination and long term maintenance of Francophone performing arts.

5. Dissemination of Francophone performing arts and the Francophone community groups in Alberta
4.2. ITSOBJECTIVES  To promote collaboration between performing arts presenters and producers through regular meetings.  To ensure the long term dissemination of Albertas Francophone art products through modern communication links between performing arts presenters and producers.  of Albertas Francophone art products byTo ensure greater visibility adapting marketing approaches based on needs and making full use of the network.  To ensure the quality of dissemination infrastructures.  To foster the training and professional development of its members.  promote the development and education of Francophone audiences inTo Alberta.  foster a broader dissemination of Albertas Francophone artTo products.  4.3. Its Clients  Albertas Francophone and Francophile audiences  Canadas Francophone audiences  International Francophone audiences   The information collected from Francophone community organisations was aimed at identifying potential presenters. Therefore, in order to identify other organisations interested in producing a show during an event, the study purposely did not consult Francophone organisations that work exclusively in the field of arts and culture. A total of thirty eight (38) community organisations throughout the province were targeted for consultation. Fourteen (14) of these organisations, or 36.8%, completed the questionnaire (see Appendix 2 for a list of these organisations). The data collected was compiled into three categories and presented in tables. The tables content must be viewed as an overview of what the 14 organisations participating in the study produce and not an actual picture of what is being achieved across the province in the field of arts and culture. It is also important to keep in mind that out of the 14 organisations that responded, 10 present shows and artistic and cultural productions on an annual and regular basis through cultural activities. The three categories are: 5.1 Overview of the Annual Artistic Programming 5.2 Professional Services Desired in French 5.3 Anticipated Partnering with the RAFA

The amount of money that can be invested in such activities during the year varies from school to school. One of the 13 schools that responded to the questionnaire, a low enrolment school, did not have the ability to allocate a budget to the field of arts and culture. The other 12 schools reported that the average amount of money allotted to an artistic discipline ranged between $200 and $400 per year. Finally, in the case of some schools, the budget is administered by the school board
