Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie 2022

As part of the 24th edition of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF), being held from March 1 to 31, 2022, we encourage you to celebrate the French language across the country.

What better way to illustrate the theme of the 2022 edition of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF), “These traditions that forge identities,” than with a traditional work of art?

With its skillfully crafted texture and appearance, this piece was created using the hooked rug technique and at first sight shows the dexterity of the human hand. It seemed only natural that the hand should be the main visual feature of the piece and the key symbolic element.

The six hands are arranged in a circle, as if coming together to join in a rallying cry, evoking the universal values at the core of the RVF—multiculturalism, mutual enrichment, belonging, openness to others and togetherness. The sleeves are adorned with different patterns signifying uniqueness and personal identity.

These symbols represent the traditions we carry within us and that we keep alive and evolving over time, to one day pass them from one generation, one friendship and one culture to another.

No longer tied to their home base, their branch, their bouquet, but brought together in a central light, our traditions are now ready to be shared, borrowed, exchanged, modified, adapted, multiplied, enriched, remixed, reincarnated, but most of all—rewoven!
