On the Association’s first official meeting on November 22, 1915, a lecture is given about theatre in France during the Middle Ages. Initially, the Alliance’s cultural activities consist of conference revolving around France’s history, literature and heritage. In the 1920s and 1930s, the topics become more diversified, the pool of speakers expands and the lectures start taking place in various Winnipeg venues such as the Hudson Bay store, the Marlborough Hotel, the Fort Garry Hotel and the University Women’s club. Further, this initial cultural component is amplified with musical evenings and theatre plays, often present at the Théâtre Cercle Molière and the University of Manitoba’s French Club. For the first time in 1938, the Alliance française du Manitoba presents films featuring French actors.
