The Alliance Française is a world-wide non-profit, apolitical and non-religious network that strives to promote French language and Francophone cultures.  It serves as a French teaching centre with a far-reaching cultural program, that includes art, music and theatre.  It functions with the support of the French embassy and the French institute of South Africa; it also works in partnership with various local companies and cultural bodies.
