Inauguration of the new premises of the French Alliance of Paramaribo

On November 19, the Alliance Française of Paramaribo officially opened the new premises in which it had just moved. A hundred guests were present including the Director of Culture, representing the Minister of Education, the French Ambassador and a number of residents and non-resident ambassadors and representatives of the diplomatic corps. Besides the French community, representatives of cultural associations, journalists and of course fans of culture came to join this event.

The evening, which was opened by a few brief remarks, continued with the screening of short films provided by the French Institute followed by exchanges around French food. The presentations were an opportunity to recall the experience of the Alliance Française in Suriname installed there over 57 years and the ongoing projects which as marked by the President are in line with France and nearby especially Guyana
The relocation of the French Alliance in premises which are her own is an important step in its development process. The premises of the Alliance are located in the well known cultural complex at 112-114, Henk Arronstraat (alliancefrancaisesu@hotmail.com).
. With the support of the Embassy of France in Suriname and of the French Guyana region and with the support provided by the Surinamese authorities particularly for the reopening since the beginning of this year of French classes and for organizing events such as the Fête de la Musique, the activity of the French Alliance of Paramaribo participates to bilateral and regional cooperation.

Madame Francisca MOELJOREDJO, Présidente de l'Alliance Française.
Monsieur SIDOEL, Directeur de la culture du SURINAME
S.E. Monsieur Michel PROM l' Ambassadeur de France au SURINAME
