La Slague continues to offer the solidarity pricing system
For the 2021-2022 season, Carrefour francophone and La Slague are letting you decide how much to pay to attend our shows or purchase our artistic products. Why are we doing this?
- Because rich and rewarding cultural experiences should be available to everyone, regardless of their financial situation.
- Because all of Sudbury’s Francophones and Francophiles should be welcome in a supportive and vibrant community.
- Because belonging to a culture and the quality of life fostered by the arts are human rights.
How much should your ticket cost?
You are welcome to choose a reduced price for your ticket if you are struggling to meet basic needs like food, medication, lodging or transportation.
How much should you pay? See the categories below and determine your position on the scale.
Free ticket – $0
- You are unemployed or your revenue is minimal.
- You struggle to meet your basic needs and you’re financially stressed.
- You struggle to pay the cost of public transit or gas for essential transportation.
- You never eat out and you can rarely afford a ticket to a show or a cultural event.
- You use government aid, such as social assistance and food banks.
- You are a refugee or an asylum seeker.
- You have minimal or no savings.
Economy ticket – a portion of the full price
- You have limited income.
- You struggle to meet your basic needs, but you manage.
- You can pay the cost of public transit or gas for essential transportation.
- You have a job or regular work.
- You can sometimes eat out and occasionally buy tickets for a show or a cultural event.
- You have modest savings.
Regular ticket – full price
- You can comfortably meet all of your basic needs.
- You can comfortably pay the cost of public or private transportation.
- You have a job or regular paid work.
- You eat out fairly often and you can afford tickets to shows or cultural events.
- You have significant savings.
Solidarity ticket – more than the regular price
- The criteria for regular tickets describe your situation. But to help your less fortunate neighbours access arts and culture, you are willing to pay a bit more than the regular price for your ticket, thus supporting the aims of the “pay what you can” policy.
We would like to thank the Théâtre Cercle Molière in Winnipeg, which inspired this new payment scale!
La Slague is a member of the Coalition for Fair Ticketing, which brings together cultural organizations wishing to jointly reflect on best accessibility ticketing practices and thus promote access to art and culture.

La Slague's Evolution
La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
