Poetry Night 2023: Celebrating the French language through Poetic Threads

Share This:

March 3, 2023

Every year since 2016, our embassy joins other diplomatic missions of the member countries of la Francophonie to highlight the French language and the cultural diversity of the French-speaking world in Mexico through a series of activities that take place as part of la Nuit de la Poésie (Poetry Night).

On March 23, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. onwards, we will once again give a voice to talented word weavers during our eighth edition of la Nuit de la Poésie in Casa de Francia.

Join us in this soirée to celebrate Francophonie month and enjoy the #PoeticThreads that erase borders! The event will feature poetry readings, musical performances, panel discussions, tertulias and talks by Francophone artists from different parts of the world, as well as an open mic session!

How to attend

Reserve your spot via Facebook:


This contest is for poetry lovers and those interested in reading books in French. In the framework of Poetry Night, we will be giving away kits with Canadian poetry books in French and other surprises!

To participate, follow us on our Facebook page in Spanish and wait for a word search puzzle containing seven Francophonie values that will be published at 7:00 p.m. The first seven people to find and comment a Francophonie value that has not already been mentioned will win the kits!

(This contest is open to anyone who can provide an address in Mexico City to receive their prize).
