AF Worldwide Network
L’Alliance Française de Tulsa is proud to be affiliated with a worldwide network founded in Paris on July 21, 1883, when the Alliance Française de Paris was created to promote French language and culture and to foster positive relations between all Francophones and Francophiles. Original members included: the scientist Louis Pasteur, the diplomat Ferdinand de Lesseps, the writers Jules Verne and Ernest Renan, and the publisher Armand Colin.
We are members of the Federation of Alliances Françaises USA (AFUSA), whose mission is to support its individual member chapters in their efforts to promote French language and francophone culture, cross-cultural understanding and the strengthening of intercultural communication.
