Celebration of the French-German friendship in Lagos
130 people gathered on the Goethe Institute’s roof top in Lagos Island to celebrate the 53rd anniversary of the French-German friendship Treaty (Elysée Treaty)
Since the 40th anniversary of this treaty, in 2003, France and Germany celebrate each 22nd of January the French-German friendship. (to get more informations about the 13th French German day ...)
The 22nd of January, about 130 peoples went on the Goethe Institute’s roof top to celebrate the anniversary of the Elysée Treaty, on the invitation of the German and French consulates, Goethe Institute and Alliance française.
The public have had the occasion to watch the screening of short-movies from France (Miniyamba and Lettres de femmes) and from Germany (Klein geld and Schwarz Fahrer), and tasted culinary specialties from both countries.
The evening went on and ended with music, with the DJ’s Afrologic, Bally and Java, who participated last year in Electronics Soundscape, a musical project supported by the French-German cultural fund.
This event was an pleasant occasion for the French-German couple to reaffirm the strength of its bonds, and to showcase to the Nigerian partners the projects supported by both countries here in Nigeria.
The audience really liked this evening, thanks to its original topic and program.
