Francophonie 2015 [fr]

PNG

Every year in March the French cultural network in South Africa and Lesotho celebrates French language and the Francophone cultural diversity.

In 2015, festivities are taking place across the country: concerts, book launched, dance shows are part of an exciting programme organised for you by the French Institute in South Africa (IFAS) and the network of Alliance Française, from Johannesburg to Maseru, via Port Elizabeth, Pretoria and Durban.

The programme of events brings together artists and performers from across the French-speaking world.
