Welcome to the French Cultural Center of the Carolinas

About US
The French Cultural Center of the Carolinas (“The Center”) will promote French art, literature, cinema, and language, encouraging interest and participation in French culture through events, programming, exchanges, and classes. The Center will:
  • Organize guided visits to French art exhibitions at relevant museums;
  • Lead book clubs where participants can read and discuss books, plays, and poetry by French or Francophile authors;
  • Host film screenings for French and Francophile films;
  • Facilitate language groups where interested participants can practice and improve their French language skills;
  • Promote French history by holding events around various traditional French holidays;
  • Organize French cultural events (music, food, etc.).

More broadly, the Center aims to develop partnerships with other French, European, and US-based organizations such as The Alliance Française, the French American Chamber of Commerce of the Carolinas, the North Carolina Museum of Art, and local universities, to further develop the Center's programming.

Ultimately, the Center hopes to have a designated physical space to be called La Maison de la France et de l’Europe (the French and European House). Managed by the Center, this space will be accessible to people who wish to come for a dedicated event or spend time informally (to network, eat French pastries, taste French wine, read French books, etc.). The space will be used for events to increase awareness and maximize the influence of French culture. Anyone will be welcome to come and use the space.
