Francophonie Month in AFLyon!

Back to the list

In March, the Alliance Française de Lyon is revitalizing its cultural activities and getting involved with strategic partners in the city of Lyon.

As part of Francophonie Month, we’ll be organizing various events both inside and outside our Alliance to celebrate cultural diversity and the richness of our language!

Discover the highlights of this exceptional month:

Le Magnifique Printemps

We’ll be hosting the opening night of Magnifique Printemps on our premises on Saturday March 9 from 7.30pm. In the company of Agneta Falk, godmother of this edition, we’ll be delighted to welcome the poetic trio “Les Trois Grâces”, formed by Samantha Barendson, Estelle Dumortier and Aurora Vélez. They will offer a cross-reading of their texts, which resonate together to form a whole.

On the closing evening, on Friday March 29 at 7.30pm at the Alliance Française de Lyon, Agneta Falk will be accompanied on electric guitar and electronic machines by Antoine Colonna, with the Schvédranne project, a blend of music and poetry.
