Ambassador Emmanuel Lenain inaugurates the Jit Paul Auditorium
Ambassador of France in India, H.E. Mr Emmanuel Lenain and Chairperson Emeritus, Apeejay Surrendra Group, Mrs. Shirin Paul today inaugurated the Jit Paul Auditorium set in a spectacular new Alliance française du Bengale space in Park Mansions.
Alliance française du Bengale has doubled space to meet the rising demand for learning French, a language now being used in research, technology, sciences and international business.
The inauguration kicks off Alliance française du Bengale’s 80th birthday celebrations and will be followed by a year full of events and announcement of new educational courses.
Jit Paul Auditorium will be one of a kind space on Park Street. The Alliance française now allows this space to reinforce its position as a culture hub in Kolkata, to make French and Indian artists interact and meet on the cultural scene of Kolkata. By doing so, it aims to bring back part of the lost art and culture back on Park Street.
From using natural materials such as bamboo from Sundarban for thermic isolation and soundproofing or using mud chai tea cups to use as less plastic as possible, Alliance française du Bengale is creating a sustainable and eco-friendly space.
