Bilingualism and the promotion of the French language are the focus of programs in secondary education. An innovative program in higher education and research allows French and American universities to build institutional relationships and to create new curricula together.

The Invisible Dog Art Center

The Invisible Dog Art Center is a raw space in a vast converted factory building with a charmed history and an open-ended mission: to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center. The Invisible Dog brings together artists of all career stages, offering them unique opportunities for involvement. Over the last two years, the art center has evolved organically, developing with and alongside its diverse roster of collaborators. Neither a commercial gallery nor a concept-driven non-profit, The Invisible Dog has a unique role in the New York arts scene. It has become a place where artists working in all media can do things they wouldn’t be able to do anywhere else in New York.


The New York International Children's Film Festival

The New York International Children's Film Festival was founded in 1997 to support the creation and dissemination of thoughtful, provocative, and intelligent film for children and teens ages 3-18.

The festival has grown from one weekend of films into the largest film festival for children and teens in North America. Screened over the course of four weeks at venues throughout NYC, the festival program is comprised of approximately 100 short and feature films, filmmaker Q&As, retrospective programs, parties, and premieres.


Brooklyn Music School

Today Brooklyn continues to be a magnet for people from around the world, both musicians seeking new audiences and families seeking a better life.
