ARTS & CULTURE
Institut français India aims to stimulate Indo-French collaborations and promote the artistic dynamism of French contemporary Art as well as its rich heritage, on the Indian territory.
Working hand in hand with French and Indian cultural institutions, Institut français India operates in close connection with the Alliance Française network within the Indian territory in order to make French culture accessible to everyone, all around India.
Supporting artistic expression in its broadest scope, it supports an overall policy of cooperation in the major fields of visual arts, music, performing arts, but also architecture, design, fashion and gastronomy. It thus engages in five main areas of action, in conjunction with its main office, the Institut Français Paris:
French higher education +
Expertise and professional training +
Addressing a wide diversity of audience is a main focus, regardless of the gender, social status and ability. In particular, a Focus on young audience is run on a regular basis. Furthermore, as part of these actions, the spotlight is shed on the rich French cultural diversity i.e by showcasing works of artists from Reunion Island.
Through the missions it fulfils, the Institut Français India is directly involved in the cultural and creative industries sector, key driver of vibrancy and development for the French economy.
