FESTIVAL YOUTH CENTRE

The Association 'Centres de Jeunes et de Séjours du Festival d'Avignon', which brings together three founding partners: the Festival d'Avignon, the city of Avignon and the Ceméa, has been organising since 1959 stays of 5 to 9 days, for young people and adults, in groups or individually, during the Festival. All the stays, with full board, organised in schools inside and outside the city and supervised by teams of Ceméa activists, offer artistic initiation activities, convivial meetings with artists and performing arts professional as well as special admission conditions to the shows.
