Our mission

The mission of the French Institute of Cyprus is to cover all missions set by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

  • Promote and disseminate the French culture and language - The Institute keeps the Francophonie alive in relation to the Cypriot Authorities.
  • Facilitate cultural exchange (visual arts and performing arts) - Co-produce shows in Cyprus that reflect modern French Culture and create partnerships with local cultural organizations.
  • Facilitate student mobility and promote higher education in France or French studies in Cyprus (Ecole Française/ The Department of French Studies, University of Cyprus).
  • Strengthen scientific cooperation between France and Cyprus. The IFC programmes cover all fields of cultural cooperation: artistic and literary, educational and linguistic, academic and scientific activities through various approaches: exhibitions, lectures, debates, films, concerts, dance performances and theater, French courses, training of teachers, etc. ....

I invite you to frequently visit our website which I hope will illustrate the dynamism of the Franco-Cypriot relationship.
