Accompanying major artistic and cultural moments in the Indian calendar always plays an instrumental role in increasing the visibility of an artist, whether Indian or French. It allows both Indian and French actors room for interaction and creative exchange. Every year, the Indian cultural season is marked by numerous collaborations between the major Indian cultural actors and France.

The French Institute in India has developed strong partnerships with Serendipity Arts Foundation, Kochi Muziris Biennale, National Gallery of Modern Art, Chennai Photo Biennale, Krishnakriti Festival, Prakriti Foundation among others.
