Since December 2020, as Communication and Culture Coordinator at Aliança Francesa de Brasília, I am responsible for the strategic planning, creation, review and editing of content and multimedia communication campaigns, online and offline, as well as the institution's cultural activities. I am also responsible, together with the local management of the French Alliance in Brazil's Capital, of participating in national and international cultural events held in partnership with the French Embassy in Brazil, the Alliance Française Network Brazil, the Goethe-Zenthrum Brasília, the Brasília Cluster EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture), the SESC-DF, the Fondation des Alliances Françaises, the Institut Français, among others.
