    The Francophonie is a community revolving around the French language, shared by 275 million people worldwide, including 100 million in Africa. Throughout the week of the 22nd of March, the Francophonie will be celebrated at the FNCC and will serve to highlight the values it embraces through different activities, by bringing together different communities, around a shared common language, based on the values of diversity, peace, justice, security, solidarity, democracy and human rights. This approach naturally resonates with the FNCC motto - "Together for Cultural Diversity".

    Special cinema screenings for the youth as well as for adults will depict different realities of the Francophone world. A poetry evening will be held aimed at giving a platform to both budding and established poets to participate in an open-mic poetry evening, around the theme Africa(s). We welcome you to share poems of your favorite author or to read your own, or just to come listen and enjoy an evening of poetry!
