Mission of the French Institute of Cyprus
Like many institutions in the world, the French Institute of Cyprus covers all missions defined by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
- To promote and disseminate French culture and language. The institute acts for a living Francophonie in connection with the Cypriot authorities.
- To favour cultural exchanges (plastic and performing arts), co-produce shows in Cyprus in link with French artistic creation, to create partnerships with local institutions and associations.
- To enhance student mobility and to promote higher education in France or in French in Cyprus.
- To strengthen scientific cooperation.
- Thus, the programme of the French Institute of Cyprus covers all fields of cultural, artistic and literary, educational and linguistic, academic and scientific cooperation through multiple actions: exhibitions, conferences, debates, cinema, concerts, dance performances and drama, French classes, teacher training, etc.
We invite you to visit frequently our website which will, hopefully, illustrate the dynamism of Franco-Cypriot cooperation.
