In agreement with the prefecture of Vaucluse, the Ministry of Culture confirms the maintenance of the first edition of the Estates General of the Festivals on October 2 and 3 in Avignon.

A strict health protocol is implemented in the sites hosting the event (the FabricA and the congress center of the Palais des Papes). Beyond the constant obligation to wear the mask and respect the distance and gestures barriers, all moments of conviviality (coffee break, etc.) have been removed.

Moreover, and so that these exchanges can take place throughout the territory, each of the Regional Directorates of Cultural Affairs (DRAC) will organize, in person or remotely, debates bringing together artists, event organizers, and representatives of local authorities.
