FESTIVALS AND ARTISTIC EMERGENCE: THE IDEAL UNION

From year to year, the discovery of young talented artists takes up more and more importance within the project of numerous french and foreign festivals. On top of enriching their program with these standouts, festivals give themselves a chance be more visible in the eyes of the public. These venues help the progression of the local scene all while allowing for the exportation of artists  outside of the countries borders.

This implies an intricate recruitment process often reinforced by  measures of accompanying and advice for young artists. From these initiatives that reinforce festival's identities, what are the different form and objectives, the implications of  public authorities (local and national), the means of financing as well as the downside? Experts on the subject the DeConcert network invites representatives from their festivals in order to confront and share their experiences.

With a solidarity-based approach and always promoting its members’ initiatives, the federation focuses in particular on the sharing and pooling of experiences (organisation, bookings…) and communication tools, on the promotion of creation and artistic development and on studying the evolution of the festival industry as well as its representation in professional bodies such as institutions and civil societies.

The network gathers artistically independent festivals that are all conscious of the well being of their visitors and artists. They are dedicated to their region while being open to national and transnational cooperation. These festivals are cultural actors who are deeply rooted in the cultural and economic landscape of each of their respective areas.
They favour values such as brotherhood, citizenship, the sense of sharing, eco- friendliness and artistic boldness. The network may coopt to invite other events as well if voted by a two-thirds majority at the board of directors.
