The Francophonie Festival is now over, here’s a look back at some of the biggest events that took place at the Alliance!

This festival was meant to celebrate the diversity of Francophonie and we were delighted to team up with the embassies of Belgium, Switzerland, France, and the High Commission of Canada along with the Lycée Français de Singapour and volunteers from Qatar, Vietnam, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Cameroun & Romania, to bring you the best of each culture! We also thank our Festival Ambassador, Hossan Leong!

Almost 3000 of you gathered during our two week celebration. THANK YOU for your amazing response and support! YOU made this festival an extra special one.
