Rendez-Vous Interview: Our first guest, francophone photographer and video producer, Claire Bangser, reflects on the one year anniversary of her project  NOLABeings, a photo story-telling project inspired by Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York. We’ll hear about her journey talking to strangers across the city and her hope that this project empowers us all to learn a bit more about our fellow New Orleanians. Claire Bangser, photographe à la Nouvelle-Orléans s’est mis au défi il y a un an de parler aux inconnus dans la rue pour son projet NOLA Beings. 

French Corner: We’ll visit the Alliance Française Dégustation de vin, to learn about wines from the Southeast region of France-  Rhône, Languedoc, Provence. Our tastings take place quarterly at the Alliance Française- they’re casual, seated, fun, peppered with a bit of French, and informative. Une visite à la Dégustation de vin avec l’Alliance Française- allons-y!

Rendez-Vous Interview: Our second interview this month will feature local francophone artist Mary Grace Cathryn Bernard. Mary Grace’s art displays both a constant reminder of someone living with cystic fibrosis, and a vibrant perspective on the world. Since her diagnosis with cystic fibrosis when she was 5 years old, she has reinvented herself through art. This February, Mary Grace has embarked on a challenge to create a sixty-five rose piece every day in order to raise awareness and money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. See her roses and purchase your own here. On discute le défis de sixty-five roses avec l’artiste francophone, Mary Grace.

Let’s Get Lexical: We’ll hear the next installment of Fabienne Kanor’s reading from « La Vielle », an excerpt of her novel Humus. You can see an adaptation of Humus on stage, translated to English, on Sunday March 8th at Café Istanbul.
