The Institut français is aimed mainly at four types of contacts around the world.
These are the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture. The Institut français conducts the missions entrusted to it by the French government through its two supervisory ministries.
These are the people who benefit directly from the expertise of the Institut français’ teams, including the French cultural network abroad, creators – be they artists, writers or intellectuals – as well as professionals and companies in the French or foreign cultural and educational sectors.
These are those with whom the Institut français collaborates and develops projects, such as French and foreign cultural institutions, state cultural operators, local authorities and civil society stakeholders.
These are predominantly the audiences of the French cultural network abroad.
