Bienvenue au Sénégal, le pays de la téranga!

Le Mois de la Francophonie: A Celebration of Senegal Throughout the Month of March
Téranga, literally meaning to help a guest come ashore, is the Wolof word for hospitality.

This March, more than 33 million people around the world celebrate le Mois de la Francophonie, a global initiative led by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie to highlight the diversity of French-speaking cultures. This year, AFMSP will celebrate Senegal's rich history and culture of téranga through a series of events. Join us!

Mille mercis to our partners at the Senegalese Association of MN (SAM), Macalester College, Normandale Community College, Consulate General of Canada in Minneapolis, The Cedar Cultural Center, The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul, INSTITUT FRANÇAIS and Compatible Technology International.

The opening ceremony "Ndajé Téranga" will take place on Saturday, March 4 from 6-8 pm at AFMSP.

Enjoy Senegalese cuisine, a fashion show, music and dance, with remarks from the Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul and the Senegalese Association of Minnesota. RSVP here.
