Exhibition: Objectif Sport

From 20 February to 22 April, the Alliance Française de Manchester hosts the exhibition of the prize-winning entries to the Fondation Alliance Française’s annual photography contest.

This year’s exhibition theme is sport and the exhibition features a collection of photos from various countries displaying the place of sport and sporting practices in different societies. Many of the photographs show the social and cultural aspects of sports, depicting the values such as tolerance, open-mindedness, social inclusion and team cohesion.

Let yourself be swept away on an extraordinary and singular journey - from the streets of Kolkata, to a women’s wrestling ring in Kathmandu, to an Olympic swimming pool in Auckland - to the heart of sports hidden side.

Related to this event, a lecture is organised on 6 March on the theme: "More than just a Game? How sport influences business, politics and society". More information here
