Le Pavillon de France – French Pavilion
Francophone cultural network and events
History and Today’s organization
The Pavillon de France is an active network for cultural exchange programs around French culture and language, organizing a large number of events, talks, film screenings and exhibitions since 2006. A foundation stone was laid in 1993 on the future building site of the Pavillon, however building plans are yet to be clearly formulated, in relation to the development of the International Zone of Auroville.
Until the Pavilion takes shape physically, the network will sustain its activities under the umbrella of francophony : cultural programs, the quarterly publication of the “Revue d’Auroville, Auro-traductions, and Aurofilm to name a few.
