In connection with The King and Queen's state visit, the Swedish Embassy in Paris – in partnership with Business Sweden, the Swedish Institute and Visit Sweden – is arranging a week with a focus on Swedish culture in France called La Suède en lumière. The programme is based on Nordic society and the contrasts between light and darkness, warmth and cold, inside and outside.
The following events linked to Sweden will take place in Paris during 1-7 December:
Photographic exhibition with images by Tuija Lindström at the Swedish Institute, 11 rue Payenne
European Capital of Culture 2014: presenting Umeå at the Galleri Fresker through a photographic exhibition, Gare de Lyon
A talk about Queen Kristina and a concert of baroque music, conducted by Mats Liljefors, INHA, Salle Colbert, 2 rue Vivienne
