The Francophonie Month starts at the Matica Srpska Gallery in Novi Sad in March

French culture is again the centre of attention, as it is every March, i.e. in the month of Francophonie.

During the Francophonie Month, the Matica Srpska Gallery in Novi Sad will host experts holding various presentations, concerts, curatorial visits, educational programs and children workshops.

“Serbia and France have cultivated good relations and cultural exchanges for years,” says the director of the Matica Srpska Gallery, Dr. Tijana Palkovljević Bugarski.

“It seems to me that the month of Francophonie has become a traditional event of the Gallery, which is also important for our audiences,” said Palkovljević Bugarski before the opening of the event.

The entire programme is realized with the help of the French Institute in Novi Sad, which director Vladimir Marinkovic says that people in Serbia have been increasing their knowledge about the French culture which is a good result of the Serbian-French cultural exchange.

“This year, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Francophonie, an international organization of countries that use the French language for various purposes. Serbia became an associate member a few years ago. As far as we know, there are plans for Serbia to become a full-fledged member of Francophonie,” Marinkovic adds.
