About the Alliance Française


Bienvenue! The Alliance Française de Louisville is an organization dedicated to providing programs and services that engage our community in the language and cultures of French-speaking peoples.

The Alliance Française is a worldwide organization devoted to the enjoyment of French language and culture. We are a private nonprofit association based in Paris, with 1,335 local chapters in 138 countries. Few are more active or enthusiastic than the Alliance Française of Louisville. Participation in this global network gives us access to cultural resources not ordinarily within reach of a local club.

“The Alliance Française in the United States has the role of promoting French and the French and Franco-phone cultures, and of encouraging the cultural, intellectual and artistic exchanges between the United States and the French-speaking world. 
In accordance with the statutes of the Foundation of the Alliance Française, each Alliance is managed locally as an independent non-profit organization without political or religious affiliations.” (http://afusa.org/delegationpage.php)
