Festival de la Francophonie 2021

Mar 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 3:00 pm

The Francophonie in Pretoria is an annual event that attracts over 25 Francophone Embassies and Organisations, with a public of more than 3,000 people.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year the event will be hosted online. This change of format brings with it a number of new opportunities and challenges. With events streamed to participants through Facebook Live. With music concerts, video interviews (Voyage dans la Francophonie). We will also have some events and workshops that you can join (through teleconferencing), or view from Facebook Live. If you wish to participate, ask questions, then follow the Google Meets links, otherwise, if you just want to watch, visit the Francophonie South Africa page. It’s up to you!

A multitude of events are also planned throughout the week by the different participating Embassies and High Commissions. We are very excited to make you a part of our Online Francophonie event and hope to see you all join us!
