The performance “Artful Prayers for France” will be for hope and humanity and will emphasize a memorial for the victims of Paris of last November.

 A time to experience beauty for ashes and a time where mourning is turned into new hope. As a form of inspirational and healing expression, the gifts of dance, music, song, poetry and visual art will be presented as a memorial to its victims of terrorism and in honor and dignity for France and its people.


Le spectacle « Artful Prayers for France » sera dédié à l’espoir et à l’humanité en mémoire aux victimes de l‘attentat terroriste survenu à Paris le 13 novembre 2015.

Une soirée d’art-en-révérence, offrande sacrée de prière et d’intercession pour la France et son peuple. Un temps pour découvrir la beauté des cendres et un temps où le deuil est transformé en nouvel espoir. Sources d’inspiration et de guérison, les dons de la danse, de la musique, de la chanson, de la poésie et des arts visuels seront offerts par les artistes en mémoire aux victimes du terrorisme et dans l’honneur et la dignité pour la France et son peuple.

Entrée gratuite… Les dons en espèces sont toutefois appréciés et possibles durant l’évènement.


This performance is part of the month of the Francophonie and will be held at Heights Church of Christ, a Texas landmark protected by the City of Houston. It was designed by Architect Albert Finn who also designed the Chase Bank Tower downtown. The site is now 101 years old.
