Alliance Française Accra is a non-profit organisation which promotes cultural exchanges between Ghana, France and francophone countries and supports the development of the cultural sector in Ghana.
This cultural centre offers French and English classes and is also a unique platform for arts and artists. In 2013, Alliance Française Accra organized over 80 events. They include concerts, film screenings, theatre, dance, traditional music, exhibitions, masterclasses, workshop, etc.
Shows featured famous artists such as Yaa Pono, Paapa, Wanlov, Koo Nimo, Jojo Abot and the film director Akosa Adoma Owusu.
Alliance Française aims at making arts and culture accessible for everyone that is why tickets rates start at 2GHC and rarely exceed 20GHC.
Each month Alliance Française Accra offers a rich and eclectic cultural program. Fête de la Musique /World Music Day (21st June), Semaine de la Francophonie/ Francophony Week (March) and La Paillote Takpekpe (every last Wednesday of the month) and festivals like Ehalakasa, Indie Fuse, Bless the mic are some of the major events.
