Discover France And Its Culture: The Limousin Region (part II)

Season 22

Season 22 is part II of the discovery of the Limousin Region. From the large space of Plateau des Mille Vaches, to the historical city of Limoges, from the peaceful limousine ewes to the terrible Beast of Limousin, from porcelain to enamel, from Aubusson tapestry to the local dances, from the traditional processions to the dark hours of World War Two in Oradour-sur-Glane, from delicious recipes to food fairs, you will discover the stories and the History of this province.

Each conference lasts two hours. The program takes place on Fridays and Saturdays, Fridays in English/ Saturdays in French

The first conference of our twenty-second season will be held on Friday, January the 20th at 6:00 pm.

The cost for a session of 5 conferences is $ 60. But you can in fact decide to take advantage of the bilingualism of our program to improve your French or your English; and register, for the same price, for the full session of 10 conferences. 

If you prefer to select specific conferences, the pricing is then $ 18 per conference, with still the option of attending the same conference in English and in French, with no increase in the price.
