STEPANAKERT (Public Radio of Armenia)—In an effort to strengthen and broaden friendly ties between the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and France, Artsakh will host a three-day festival dedicated to French culture titled “French Days of Artsakh” on September 17-19.

Around 200 guests from France will visit Artsakh for the festival, representing a broad range of organizations and community members including the France-Karabakh Friendship Circle, representatives from sister cities of Artsakh, members of France’s Armenian community, artists and journalists.

As part of the festival a number of events will take place across Artsakh, including the groundbreaking of the new House of Paul Eluard Francophone Center, the opening of the Yeznik Mozyan vocational school in Shushi, and the revealing of a new sculpture by French-Armenian artists Toros. The festival will also include a viewing of animated films by the French Folimage studio at the State Museum of Fine Arts of Shushi, and a concert by French-Armenian singer Patrick Fiori in Stepanakert’s Revival Square.
