The Institut français programmes and projects
RIFT - Rencontres Internationales de la French Tech, Business France's flagship event dedicated to digital startups and SMEs with export projects, returns on 17 November 2021. This 8th edition will focus on the recovery and international projection of innovative companies.
From 1 January to 30 June 2022, France will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union (FPEU). It takes on its role as facilitator among the Member States and brings them together around priority issues, particularly in the field of culture. Events throughout Europe can be followed in person or remotely by all culture lovers. The Institut français is involved in the FPPEU by reinforcing the impact and visibility of its activities on a European scale.
One of the new missions entrusted to the Institut français on its creation was to affirm the European dimension of France's cultural action abroad.
Our objectives are as follows:
- To make the Institut français a visible, recognised and influential player on the European scene by increasing its partnerships and participation in European initiatives;
- To develop the Institut's capacity to implement projects co-financed by the European Union by working to take greater account of European policies and objectives in our actions;
- To raise the Network's and our partners' awareness of European priorities and policies on the one hand, but also of the cross-disciplinary issues supported by European institutions (Sustainable Development Goals, Culture and Development, social impact of projects, Green Pact for Europe, etc.).
The project presented by the winning artist Zineb Sedira in the French Pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale extends beyond the presentation of the work in situ from 23 April to 27 November 2022. The resonances of the project begin upstream and will continue long afterwards.
