As we are not currently able to physically get together for social events, but want to keep our community engaged, curious, and connected, the Alliance Française de Seattle is launching a new online program!
Titled Les Rencontres de l'Alliance, this curated offering of short video conferences will feature guest speakers from various backgrounds with connections to the Francophone world and AFSeattle. Our guests will talk about their work, their passion, or their specialization for 15 minutes in an online conference setting, followed by a 15-min Q&A moderated by the AFSeattle staff.
About the Talks: Free, in English, accessible to all. Registration is mandatory. You will receive the conference link by email 30 minutes before the start of the conference.
About the Organizer: AFSeattle is a 501(c)(3) educational and cultural non-profit organization registered in the state of Washington in 1987. It is a member of an 800+ network of Alliances Françaises around the world and aims to promote French language and Francophone cultures towards a variety of programs.
