Café des Arts: Art At The time of the Plague

$16.00 USD

Description:

Join us for a conference with Frédéric Pichon, on January 21 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 January 21 at 12:00 pm.  This event will be presented in English.

Price:
$16 non member
$11 member

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Lir M.

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.

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.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.

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?
