French Acadian Culture
May of 2018 sees the collection of French Acadian Artist Claude Edwin Theriault moving to the Digby Co, frozen in time land of Maude Lewis.
Moving to .io URl platforms hosted on Blockchain since it is the decentralized “New Internet” .
The Congrès mondial acadien 2024 (CMA2024), an international gathering that celebrates Acadian culture and is expected to attract up to 100,000 participants, will be held in southwest Nova Scotia. The event is to be held over nine days from Aug. 10 to 18, 2024…. guess who isn’t invited.
There is so much more to this vibrant community then what is out there. Early artist inspiration was Maritime folk Art , now more First Nations Inspired and runs parallel to equally interesting Nova Scotian tymes
Since there is little room for fresh self representing artistic voice and expression.If the standard Canadian Arts Council clan are not behind it, then it does not see the light of day.
Big take away here…When an artist does work that everyone likes, an artist is doing work that everyone likes, period end of story. It all stays there on that level your years
However when an artist does work that messes up the Mise-enplit up do hairdo of the ruling Academic Bureaucrates that run French Acadian Culture like the Patrimonial old Guard “Business” all due to no one wanting to see; let alone give time to visually think out and come to grasp artwork that is a reflection of the here $&$ Now.
When one doing this Pattern Interrupt then we know a culture is “Getting Somewhere”.
All cultural representations are in Acadian Music, Culture, Festivals and Genealogy in Nova Scotia…. and that’s it that’s all, very challenging for an artist to have a voice.
The spirit of French Acadians is very vibrant and innovative, like everything everywhere the internet has changed the collective mindset of this Patrimonial culture.
Seeing big change with Spring moon 2020

The mainstream bread winner is french acadian song, music with emphasis on accents, saying and dialect. Leaving the visual arts out for the most part, providing it is visual representations of Evangeline et Gabriel .you can now ditigal asset the livin be’jesus out of it
Written in The english language and published in 1847. The poem follows the “Story of a nice Acadian Girl” named Evangeline and her pain body search for her lost love Gabriel, set during the time of the Expulsion of the Acadians…..classic opera template.
It became Longfellow’s most famous work in his lifetime and remains one of his most popular and enduring works….. God bless.
The poem had a powerful effect in defining both Acadian history and identity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. More recent scholarship has revealed the historical errors in the poem and the complexity of the Expulsion and those involved, which the poem ignores. And Academic Bureaucrats just make an Industry out of it; get one government grant after another to keep the Tourist Industry flatlining on…………………..
