In the current context of an international health crisis, the entire cultural network abroad is working to ensure the continuity of its services and missions. In particular, given the closure of many establishments, alternative solutions are being implemented every day to maintain the link with the public, offer educational continuity, and maintain actions related to cultural promotion, dissemination and cooperation.
With the aim of sharing the responses provided by the network more widely throughout the world, the Institut français proposes to list the initiatives developed to address this situation.
This first brief list will be completed quickly and regularly updated.
