Friends of the AF Around the World
For the first time in history, the network of all 816 Alliances Françaises – the largest cultural network in the world – will mobilise itself in its entirety with the goal of uniting a million francophones across the world digitally. Calling upon the dynamism and the importance of the French language and francophone cultures around the world and uniting them today for supporting and developing the projects of tomorrow, this is the goal of the challenge « 1 Million Friends for Alliance Française ».
The digital communication project « Friends of the Alliance Française » will be launched on Tuesday November 8, 2016 and will aim at uniting all those who consider themselves friends of the movement. The database thus created will become a powerful tool for interacting with this community of friends and will hence highlight the size and diversity of the AF Network around the world. Moreover, it will develop a feeling of belonging to the larger Alliance Française movement. Eventually, this community of friends can be called upon to help the Fondation AF in executing certain projects – especially those conceived by the Alliances around the world.
A new website amisalliancefr.org, a dedicated Facebook page les amis de l’Alliance Française, a Twitter account @amisalliancefr, the first « Journée des Amis » organised in several Alliances on November 8, a symbolic logo, « J’aime la langue française », a commercial along with poster and digital campaigns will be used to achieve the goal. In France and abroad, everyone is invited to be an « Ambassador of the Alliance Française » and thus become friends with a corresponding person from another continent. This new relationship will be reinforced with fun challenges based on French. These initiatives will foster a better understanding of the actions undertaken by the Alliances around the world and will offer digital tools for making new friends.
