This is a project between the Festival d'Avignon - field of unlimited "subjects" - and the press in order to make the new generation of journalists aware of the performing arts, to work on the promotion of the "cultural press" and on the renewal of audiences and spectators.

a training period coordinated by a journalist specialised in the performing arts just before the Festival, conceived as a specialisation module in cultural journalism
an internship in one of our media partners during the Festival d'Avignon.
