Who are we?

Founded in 2007, the ROCS (Regroupement des organismes culturels de Sudbury) is a coalition bringing together the seven professional francophone arts organizations from Greater Sudbury that work in the arts, culture and heritage sector.

The 2008 Summit of La Francophonie of Greater Sudbury identified the creation of a unifying cultural hub as a priority. It is in this context that the ROCS undertook the development of the Place des Arts project.

The ROCS members

  • Carrefour francophone (1950)
  • Centre franco-ontarien de folklore (1960)
  • Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario (1971)
  • Concerts La Nuit sur l’étang (1973)
  • Éditions Prise de parole (1973)
  • Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario (1995)
  • Salon du livre du Grand Sudbury (2004)

ROCS Mandate

  • Facilitate dialogue and collaboration amongst its members on local and regional issues, needs or opportunities
  • Represent the francophone cultural sector at the municipal, provincial and federal level and within the community at large
