Alliance Française de Nairobi (French Alliance in Nairobi)
The Alliance Française de Nairobi (French Alliance in Nairobi in English) is a French cultural centre that promotes artistic and cultural diversity through its large facilities. The centre was originally founded in 1949 by the French government, as part of a network of cultural centres around the world that were designed to promote the French language and culture. Today, it continues this mission through programs that include the promotion of cinema, music, theatre, dance, visual arts, thematic exhibitions, literary events, and festivals. It frequently hosts both local and foreign artists for live performances and events in its 210-seat state of the art theatre (with stage and cinema screen), its 300 seat garden stage (with maximum standing room for up to 800 people), its two exhibition galleries, and professional music studio. The centre is a popular place to see French films, live plays and musical acts, and is sometimes used for large-scale festivals, parties and assorted cultural events sponsored by the French embassy in Nairobi. Events and performances encompass a wide-range of cultures and languages and are not limited to just French.
