Off Program

Step into a world of creativity and connection with festival artists before the big event! Mark your calendar for the weekend just before the festival kicks off – we’re hosting 3 special gatherings, in french, in spanish and in english, but they are of course open to everyone.

Our workshops lie at the heart of the festival’s vision, offering an engaging platform where you can actively participate and interact closely with artists. These workshops aren’t just about art; they’re about embarking on a personal journey of creativity and rediscovery of the world around you. We have workshops tailored for both children and adults!

Camille Stories: an artistic workshop by Fauve Tintigner

Camille Stories, by Professor Donna Haraway from the University of Santa Cruz (USA), is an invitation to collective speculative fabulation that follows five generations of a symbiogenetic joining of a human child and a monarch butterfly after an ecological catastrophe that destroyed the world. But during the workshop, the children will embark on a more optimistic and constructive theme! Here is the mission: “In a future around 2100, science has allowed humans to hybridize, to be as close as possible to the living beings that need protection. Your mission is to protect a marine animal of your choice. What would you put in place?”

Each child will write/tell their story, and the painting intervention aims to create a physical space where the stories will be staged. The works created by the young participants will be exhibited at the closing event, in parallel to the premiere of an interdisciplinary creation by Fauve Tintigner and musicians participating in the festival. #SDG14 #SDG4

For children aged 9 and above.
