The celebration of Francophonie is the opportunity for francophones and francophiles of the world to better understand the concept of Francophonie while sharing moments of conviviality around the French language and francophone cultures. 20 March is the International Day of Francophonie.
The celebrations of the Francophonie Month in March 2011 and 2012 were highly successful. Fruitful partnerships were strengthened through the organisation of a varied colourful programme.
This year again, The Alliance Française du Cap wishes to renew it in March 2013 and create continuity around this symbolical month through the uniting theme of “Encounters of Peoples and Mixing Cultures”. The aim is to highlight the cultural diversity of Francophonie with an interactive and multidisciplinary approach.
