Date of Event: October 21 - November 2, 2019

Event Information: After a stop in Ottawa, Toronto and Moncton, the Alliance Française Halifax is proud to present Héro(ïne)s the exhibition in Halifax from October 21 to November 2, 2019 as part of the Francofest 2019 Book Fair, with the support of the Consulate of France in the Atlantic Provinces. For nearly 180 years that comics exist, male heroes hold, for the majority, the main role. It is clear that in the crowd of comic characters, feminine figures remain in the minority and are often tied to common stereotypes: women have their place in comics, alongside the hero, ready to help him, or heal him in case of a hard blow. From this statement, Lyon BD Festival and the scenarist JC Deveney invited around twenty authors, in which several Canadians such as Julie Rocheleau, Meags Fitzgerald, Julien Paré-Sorel, Eric Kostiuk-Williams and Guy Delisle, to imagine and create the female representation of a comic’s hero of their choice. The exhibition, composed of about twenty panels in French and English, presents a real reflection on the question of genre and representation in comic books. The event: Exhibition at Scotia Square Centre Court: from October 21 to October 27, 2019 Exhibition at the Book Fair – École secondaire du Sommet: from October 28 to November 2, 2019 Free admission Presented in French and English​
