From 12 February 2022 to 31 October 2022
The France-Portugal 2022 Season took place between 12 February and 31 October 2022. In total, more than 3 million spectators and visitors celebrated the proximity and friendship that binds our two countries.

This season, presided over by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, current director of the Théâtre de la Ville and the Festival d'Automne, was supported by numerous operators and institutions from our two countries, coordinated by two general curators: Victoire Bidegain Di Rosa for France and Manuela Júdice for Portugal.

In addition to a programme that highlighted the Europe of Culture, the France-Portugal 2022 Season wished to make a concrete commitment to the themes that bring us together and that our two countries defend in the Europe of the 21st century: ecological and solidarity-based development, notably through the theme of the Ocean, gender equality, investment in youth, respect for difference and the values of inclusion.

The organisers were supported by a large number of public and private institutions, local authorities in France and Portugal (including the City of Paris, Bordeaux Métropole, Rouen, the Normandy Region, the Occitanie Pyrénées-Méditerranées Region, Angers, the Hauts-de-France Region, the City of Bordeaux, Toulon Provence Méditerranée Métropole, Dijon Métropole and the City of Dijon, the cities of Lisbon, Porto. ...) and associations of Portuguese descendants to organise 410 labelled projects across 150 cities in France and Portugal. Among these projects, more than a hundred were original creations for the France-Portugal 2022 Season.

More than 4,000 artists and experts crossed our two borders to give birth to creations and exchanges in the fields of science and research, music, visual arts, digital, cinema, education, gastronomy, heritage and the performing arts.


This Season was supported by a Committee of Patrons chaired by Jean Lemierre, Chairman of BNP Paribas, and composed of BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole S.A., Inetum, TotalEnergies Foundation, VINCI Airports, LVMH, Saint-Gobain, Euronext, AR France Invest, Banque BCP and the Engie Foundation, to co-finance numerous projects.

Several large-scale artistic projects feature among the expected outcomes of the Season. Long-term partnerships have also been forged to support young people.

On the French side, the event was implemented by the Institut français, with the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery, the Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the Ministry of the Sea, the French Embassy in Portugal and the network of Alliances françaises in Portugal.


On the Portuguese side, it was supported by the Camões, lnstituto da Cooperação e da Língua, I.P. - Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and by the Gabinete de Estratégia, Planeamento e Avaliação Culturais (GEPAC) - Ministry of Culture, with the support of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality) and of the Ministry of Economy and Digital Transition; the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education; the Ministry of Education; the Ministry of Environment and Climate Action; the Ministry of the Sea, and the Portuguese Embassy in France.
