The last week was full of great Yakutia-related news. Here is another one, but this time from France.
Received a message from Aubry Francine. She is very remarkable, as she visited Yakutia many times. Frankly saying, it’s hard to count all your stays in our Siberian region. Aubry is an France-based educator, who helps a lot to a French-Sakha school in the village of Khamagatta, 1 hour ride north off Yakutsk.
Here is the news. She is going to have the exhibition in South France on October 4th-17th, 2010. She will display 35 portraits of Yakut children and the frescoes of drawings by kids from Yakutia, France , Belgium, Portugal and Cameroon on the theme of global warming.
Guess, who her exhibit sponsor is? It’s Nicolas Vanier, famous French explorer and Le Loup movie director. I wrote much about him previously. Check the Nicolas Vanier tag and the post Yakutia in Nicolas Vanier’s LE LOUP movie.
Dates: October 4th-17th, 2010
Location: Showroom, Office of Tourism, Aix en Provence
Open hours: daily from 11am to 18h, Sunday 14h to 17h30
OPENING: Monday, October 4 at 18:30, Showroom, Office of Tourism. On this occasion, Geraldine Berard and Valerie Francis’s books «The Siberian Journey to the Edge of the Taiga» will be distributed.

That’s all what I have at the moment. Hope more information on the Yakutia exhibition in France will appear soon.
Oh, by the way, Aubry says that her exhibit is ready to travel worldwide. If any interest expressed, she is opened to consider your proposal and come to your place. She might be found through her travel blog.
