Supporting the Festival d’Avignon

To welcome great names of contemporary national and international creation in the performing arts, with a focus on gender representation and diversity, including in terms of generations; to invite a different “guest language” every year to create a geopolitics of art beyond administrative borders; to strengthen the link between Heritage and Innovation; to bring together Europe and the world within a “luminous café” conducive to debates of ideas and professional encounters; to give youth the opportunity to experience this event for the first time; to strengthen the ecological and social commitments of the Festival: such are the axes chosen by Tiago Rodrigues for his project for the Festival.

For each of those propositions, the Festival d'Avignon needs the help of its faithful sponsors—individuals, companies, and foundations. Thanks to your donations and commitment, you help make the Festival d’Avignon a place of creation and inspiration for generations to come.

Whatever the nature and size of your contribution, you will play a decisive role within the circles of sponsors of the Festival d’Avignon.

Choosing your mode of support: different forms of sponsorship

Sponsorship is a fiscally-advantageous system available to professionals to support general interest projects and institutions. Through this system, a company can involve its collaborators, its skills, or provide financial support:

  • Skill sponsorship: the company and its collaborators provide the Festival d’Avignon with the professional skills it needs (communication consulting, technical support, training, etc.), free of charge.

  • Sponsorship in kind: the company provides goods to the Festival d’Avignon. Furniture, sets, or materials, the company contributes to the projects and mission of the Festival by helping reduce its spending.

  • Financial sponsorship: the company gives the Festival d’Avignon the means to pursue projects that are more ambitious, more responsible, or on a larger scale, regardless of their nature.


  • Privileged access to shows (booking and seating)

  • Unique exposure as a sponsor of the Festival

  • Events related to the programmed shows to experience the Festival up close

  • Tax advantages (the 1 August 2003 law re: corporate sponsorship entitles your company to a tax deduction equal to 60% of the amount donated)

Local companies

Le Cercle des entreprises mécènes du Festival d’Avignon was founded by company directors from the Avignon region in 2006. It is a place where SMEs and micro-enterprises which share artistic curiosity and belief in the territorial and international anchorage of the Festival d’Avignon can come together. Le Cercle allows for a privileged relationship with the Festival, but also with the other economic actors of the region during shared times and public relations operations. Throughout the year, but especially during the summer, Le Cercle offers events revolving around the programme of the Festival: encounters with the artists; backstage visits; priority booking…
