Meet the Melbourne French community
Come to the Convent for a new monthly series of talks, presentations and discussions – all delivered in French!
From travel writing and filmmaking, to radio production and human rights advocacy, this new event series provides a great way to learn new things, meet members of Melbourne’s growing French community, and brush up on your French.
Whether you’re a beginner or highly proficient, join the Convent’s resident French teacher, Delphine Laboureau-Ormancey and her new guest each month. Come and speak French and enjoy these informal sessions full of friendly fellow Francophiles.
Events announced to date are as follows:
- 1.30pm – 3pm, Saturday 24 February: born in Taiwan and raised in France, join international author, copywriter and journalist, Valentine Sabouraud, as she discusses childhood, world travels and the circumstances that led her to write Portraits de Melbourne – a French travel guide with a difference. Book now.
- 1.30pm – 3pm, Saturday 24 March: Dominique Davillé (and her puppets) will introduce us to the world of puppetry!
