French Institute to the UAE


Chaired by Bruno Foucher, Institut français is an Agency of the ministry of foreign affairs and international development. Created by a law of July 2010, the network of Instituts français brings together all existing French cultural centers around the world under a single brand. This network serves a one and only ambition: sharing culture and favoring crosscultural understanding.

Thus, in offering innovative and spectacular events, Institut français in the United Arab Emirates seeks to encourage artistic exchanges and to build bridges between civil societies.

This task is particularly relevant in a country like the United Arab Emirates where over 120 nationalities coexist. By joining the International Organization of Francophonie in 2010, the United Arab Emirates have proved their commitment to promoting multiculturalism, tolerance, respect of the rule of law, dialogue among cultures, all political targets dedicated to a peaceful world.
