About L’Institut français in Paris
L’Institut français is the governmental agency for the promotion of French culture abroad and the operator of the French Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs for artistic collaboration in performing arts, visual arts, architecture, as well as for the dissemination of French books, cinéma, language, thinking, and ideas. L’Institut français works in close relationship with the French cultural services abroad, including 150 local French institutes and almost 1,000 French alliances. It also collaborates with the French Ministry of Culture and Communication through a partnership agreement.

About The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.
The Cultural Services is a division of the French Embassy in the United States. The Cultural Services was first imagined in the 1930’s by Paul Claudel. In 1945 General de Gaulle appointed Claude Lévi-Strauss as the first Cultural Counselor, with the mission of providing Americans (individuals and organizations) with access and resources to engage with French culture and promote it in their own communities.
