Alliance Française Accra is relying on strong partnerships with private companies, civil societies, artists groups, other cultural venues in Accra, festivals in the region, etc supporting us throughout the year to enable us to have such a rich cultural program.

Shows Accessible to Everyone

Alliance Française aims at making arts and culture accessible for everyone that is why tickets rates start at 3GHC and rarely exceed 20GHC. All workshops are free.

You can also become a cultural member and benefit from 50% discount on all cultural activities

Financing Cultural Activities

Activities are funded thanks to revenues generated by the sale of tickets, stage rental and sponsorship (in kind and in cash). Alliance Française Accra also sponsors and conducts regular partnership with Institut Français and the French Embassy in Ghana. Renting the premises (small stage, big stage or exhibition hall) allows the institution to get additional funding.
