AFN is open! Update on our activities during COVID-19 Stay-At-Home

In these uncertain times, our thoughts are with all who have been impacted by the tornadoes and the coronavirus pandemic. More than ever, the Alliance Française de Nashville is thankful for belonging to an amazing community, and we are proud to say that we are indeed all in this together.

Due to the concerns regarding COVID-19 in Nashville, AFN has made modifications to how it delivers some of its activities. This page summarizes those changes. We will update it as often as new information becomes available, yet information is changing fast. Please check our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AFNashville/) for up-to-date information, or email us at information@afnashville.org with any questions.
