• After the initial interaction to provide financial aid to the hospital, the two cities have participated in a wide variety of collaborations. One of the most frequent activities between the two cities is the student and community exchanges. Musicians, artists, teachers, and hospitality and business professionals have all participated in these exchanges. There is also an ongoing development of additional learning opportunities with Johnson and Wales University.

 

  • Another consistent event held by the Brest committee is its wine tastings and dinners. These events give local community members the chance to experience Brest culture through food.

 

  • The committee has hosted other opportunities to experience the culture, such as concerts with Breton singer, Nolwenn Monjarret.

 

  • The committee helped to create a Denver garden in France and, with the help of the Denver Botanic Gardens, continues to help maintain and support it. This garden contains Colorado native plants that can give Bretons a taste of Denver’s culture, as well as the outdoor environment that Coloradans pride themselves on.
