Alliance Française de Lafayette became an observing member of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie on October 11th this year. In response, their first of many festival will be held November 17th at Parc de Lafayette featuring some of the area's top beat makers, producers, and DJs looking to create the future sounds of French Louisiana along with several special surprises.
The year-long fund-raising campaign with monthly festivals aims to (1) drive awareness to this wonderful news and to (2) increase AFL's capacity to execute upon its missions of growing and valorizing Francophone languages and cultures in Lafayette and beyond.
Ultimately, they are raising funds to grow the organization to a point where it can hire a full-time staff and have a dedicated place to operate the language school, cultural center and francophone business incubator.
