Francophonie Month



Every year, the Francophonie month promotes French language across the world. Meetings with artists and writers, all over the globe, are organized, as well as conferences, workshops and performances which celebrate French language in its diversity.

On the occasion of the Francophonie festival, more than thirty events shall take place in the UAE, highlighting the influence of the French-speaking culture.These events, on the initiative of embassies and consulates from the member or observer countries of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), promote French language and the value it carries across the world: friendship and dialogue among peoples, and cultural richness.

As in past years, the Institut français in the UAE has the pleasure to present its programming for this unique month. It is enriched by several events and talks thanks to many partnerships with the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, the Alliance Française and the Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi.
