Attending a show for the first time, going to a Festival for the first time is always an experience. If it turns out to be happy or unhappy, it very quickly becomes an anecdote that everyone likes to tell or a founding event or even a dreaded moment.
The "First time" project is aimed at new spectators who would not have had the idea or the desire or who would not feel legitimate to come to the Festival d'Avignon. By working on the accessibility chain - from information to coming to the shows - "First Time" proposes that everyone feels in their place, and that their First time becomes a Second time!
A year-long program
In connection with the artistic and cultural education programmes, the aim is to introduce the performing arts through workshops, a presentation of the programme, guided tours and access to the Festival's shows.
The Festival works on numerous projects that very often involve a first time for the audiences taking part.
A few examples: the À la jeunesse les micros project, the J'y suis j'en suis project or the digital project with Avenir 84. All the projects can be found on the page actions.
