FRANCE IN CUBA...AND VICE VERSATHE
Arte por Excelencias magazine had an exclusive meeting with the main promoter of the Mes de la Cultura Francesa (The French Culture Month), Mr. Jean-marie Bruno, ambassador of France to our country. Here is a summary of what he expressed:
«It's a long history of cultural exchanges that began more than two hundred years ago. We are in a new stage, a more dynamic and active one, of the cultural cooperation between our two countries, after the decision of President François Hollande, when he visited Cuba in 2015, to launch here a Month of the French Culture.
»This is the third time that the Embassy has organized this event, with two objectives: first, to allow the Cuban public to discover the creativity and diversity of contemporary French cultural creation; second, to create a lasting cooperation between the world of French culture and the world of Cuban culture in all manifestations: plastic arts, dance, theater, architecture and urban planning, a whole range that allows an exchange between our societies.
»We are two nations that consider that culture is not a commodity, that culture is a right, that it is part of the integral development of the human being, and that the State has a particular role in the promotion of cultural expressions and equality of access to culture».
