Café des Arts: Art After The Plague

Café des Arts: Art After The Plague

Join us for a conference with Frédéric Pichon, on February 18 at 6 pm.
The Middle-Ages were hit by a series of universal plagues that deeply disrupted society and affected people’s lives on a scale hard to imagine. While the Black Death was killing maybe a half of the population, Europeans never stopped to create, a strong testimony to the human spirit of resilience. Let's take a look at what happened, and how the permanence of Death changed in the way we humans saw the world through our creations.



This is an online event.  Participants will receive the link for the conference by email on February 18 at 12:00 pm.  

This event will be presented in English.

60th Anniversary of African Independance

60th Anniversary of African Independance

Speaker : Virgile Rivet Samba-Moussinga, author of Simi Mazulu ou la Nouvelle Afrique, Editions Les Impliqués, Paris, France, August 2019.





In 2020, most of African countries are celebrating their sixtieth anniversary of their independence. From the slavery trade to colonization, the continent has survived several invasions by foreign powers devastating its political sociology and culture. To many scholars and political leaders, the overall question today is whether African countries are independent. In addition, is the current general situation of African countries better than during the colonization? From the 1960s up to 2020, newly independent African countries faced several challenges which are still somewhat pending: insurrections, civil wars, restrictions of human rights and public freedoms, economic crises, corruption, lack of good governance, turning the continent into a huge hell for young people who are forced to leave their home countries, dreaming to thrive overseas no matter what are the circumstances. Today, Africa needs a new leadership. Simi Mazulu ou la Nouvelle Afrique, a 120-page novel by Virgile Rivet Samba-Moussinga is revealing the vision of the Fathers of African independence which is to set up a Continental Federal State in which justice, peace and security will grant to everyone the opportunity to thrive. Is this dream realistic? Let us wait and see.

 
Virgile Rivet Samba-Moussinga has a 14-year professional experience in practicing law. A citizen from the Republic of Congo, he is pursuing several research-projects and professional development programs in the United States of America. He has published a research work in December 2018, Criminal liability of healthcare professionals in Congo, and a novel, Simi Mazulu ou la Nouvelle Afrique in August 2019.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Stephen G.

"Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home. A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills."

Sue T.

“Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this ‘old dog’ to learn new tricks, but we couldn’t go slower. It’s been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.”

Cristina G.

“A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?”
