Chandigarh is all set to witness a week-long cultural fest Semaine De La Francophonie (French week). From March 16, Alliance Francaise, recognized by the French Embassy in India, will kickstart online and offline events. Given the pandemic situation, nothing will be held on a grand scale as it used to every year, previously.
“At Alliance, every year we celebrate Francophonie week. We come up with different kind of activities like musical concerts, theatres, cuisine workshops, film festivals, etc,” said Ophélie Belin, Director, Alliance Francaise, Chandigarh. Francophonie is a group of 88 member states and governments from five continents sharing French as a common language. These countries collectively have over 1 billion inhabitants.
