The Embassy of Serbia in Washington DC is pleased to be part of this year's the DC Francophonie Festival, that will take place from 1 to 18 March on various locations in DC.
D.C. Francophonie Cultural Festival celebrates the diversity and richness of the French language and francophone communities around the world through a series of cultural events and outreach programs presented every spring in the U.S. capital region. Celebrating the creative artistry of the French-speaking world, the Francophonie Cultural Festival is a voyage of exploration, discovery, and cultural sharing that highlights the diversity of the French language and cultures. Since 2001, more than 40 embassies and partners (including AFDC and The Smithsonian Associates) have collaborated each year to present an array of experiences all rooted in the Francophone culture — from Africa to the Americas to Asia to the Middle East–through concerts, cuisine, films, literary salons and lectures for all ages.
As an observer in the International Organization of the Francophonie Serbia is pleased to contribute to the program of the Festival in Washington DC.
