What we're about

Bienvenue !

First, don't panic, non-French speakers are also welcome, we'll teach you some good stuff :

We are lovers of French language, French culture, customs, traditions as well as its history and diversity. We promote writers, artists, philosophers and food lovers. We also love people who want to talk about areas with strong cultural Francophonie roots, our members are French, Canadian, North and West African, Haitian, Swiss, Belgium and of course American people who like everything French. Although the official language is French, you do NOT need to speak French to be a member, we will just ask you to be patient with our accent if we try to communicate. Each event has a theme and ideas are welcome.

We intend to get all these great organizers and event creatives all over Brooklyn. Expect humble beginnings in French-owned venues, then get ready for the revolution :-) My name is Jean-Philippe, French from Bretagne (Breton!). I took this meetup group when my friend Enrique left to organize A Taste of France, the biggest French event ever made (400k visitors). Meanwhile, I still lead French New York City (7,000 members) and Singles International (8,000).

By French, understand Francophones and Bons Vivants, arrogant people but fierce defenders of human rights, the country who brought us stinky cheese but also, to say the least, Voltaire, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Louise Bourgeois and Coco Chanel. As organizer of French New York City, I always valued diversity, and I was fortunate to meet polyglots from over a hundred nations (including Haiti, North and West Africa countries, and Quebec of course).
