As a supporter of the Adelaide French Festival since its inception, I am delighted to see this celebration of French culture becoming a regular fixture in Australia’s festival calendar.
The close cooperation between France and South Australia in defence industry and technology has become critical, and the Adelaide French Festival brings a wonderful and essential addition to our partnership, with music, dance, arts, food, wine and joie de vivre.
The focus this year on Brittany will be a particular treat for Adelaide: this region has a rich heritage and a unique culture which I am sure will surprise and delight you.
The Embassy is proud to support the Adelaide French Festival and to bring French artists and their work to new audiences in Australia. By building understanding and mutual appreciation of our artistic cultures and traditions we thus create strong bonds for the future.
