New Caledonia Photography Exhibition

OFFICIAL OPENING - 17 MARCH


@Alliance Française Christchurch

Saturday 17 March to Sunday 25 March
Free entry

From Saturday 17 March to Sunday 25 March, Alliance Française Christchurch will host the photography exhibition "Cultural and Natural Landscapes of New Caledonia", by Daniel Maviet.

Over the last few years, the Government of New Caledonia and Dr. Yves Lafoy, the Official Representative of New Caledonia to New Zealand, have played a major role in promoting the French language and French-speaking world cultures (“La Francophonie”) in New Zealand, and in Christchurch in particular.

Their generous support resulted in the opening of the “New Caledonian Cultural and Education Corner” in 2017 by Dr Yves Lafoy. Located in the Alliance’s French Library, this space boasts a unique collection of art books, novels, comics, travel guides, CDs and DVDs and is a window of this beautiful country in Christchurch.

New Caledonia being a French-speaking country, as well as New Zealand’s closest neighbour in the Pacific, the Official Representative of New Caledonia to New Zealand and the Alliance Française Christchurch are committed to strengthen the relations between New Caledonia and New Zealand.

In 2017, this cooperation takes a new turn with the latest exhibition which highlights the “Cultural and Natural Landscapes of New Caledonia” and shares more of this country‘s treasures with the New Zealand public.

The exhibition also aims at increasing the awareness of New Caledonia’s cultures (French and Kanak) and its pluri-ethnic diversity.

This exhibition, organized with the support of The Delegation of New Caledonia in New Zealand, is composed of beautiful and colorful photographs which highlight the beauty of natural landscapes of New Caledonia.
