Cultural and artistic cooperation
The Franco-Bahraini cultural cooperation has been historically marked by the privileged partnership that the French Embassy has developed, over the years, with the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA), equivalent of the Ministry of Culture.
France is particularly recognized in the country for its excellence in the fields of cultural engineering and artistic resources. In the field of performing arts, a growing number of events (5 to 7 French shows per year, mostly musical) have successfully found their place in the cultural and social life of the country.
French visual artists have been also regularly honoured, with for example the partnership between BACA and the Atelier de Sèvres (Paris) signed in 2016.
