I attended the 7th International Festival of French Haiku that took place in Quebec city from October 13-16, 2016. There were 97 participants that came from all regions of Quebec, France and even Switzerland.
There were many activities including haiku readings, an origami-flower workshop, a butoh workshop, a panel, a presentation about the marriage of forms between haiku and other artistic expressions, a reading of haiku with jazz music, a dinner, and a stage presentation by three innu women that transformed the audience.
Participants received many gifts including an amigurumi frog made by Andrée Paradis and a koma temari created by Diane Lemieux.
Visit the site Vieil Etang to see more photos, read a detailed description of the event (in French), and watch videos featuring my two performances: a 10 minute presentation about Vieil Etang (the French version of Old Pond Comics) and a 3 minute haiku reading (both in French).
The Festival International Francophone de Haïku takes place yearly in a French-speaking city (often in Europe). For more information, visit the Association Francophone de Haïku website or subscribe to the French haiku journal Gong.
