To meet the development and structuring needs of festivals, support their transitions and encourage their innovations and artistic risk-taking, the Ministry of Culture provides financial assistance under certain conditions.

What is support for festivals in the field of artistic creation?

Any festival organizer in the field of creation (live performance and visual arts) who meets the eligibility conditions set by the Ministry of Culture within the framework of the "Principles of State Commitment to Festivals" and meets the criteria for assistance provided for in this text, may apply for financial assistance.

Three types of aid are foreseen: one-off, three-year and one cross-cutting. In order to benefit from it, a festival must meet eligibility criteria and contribute to at least two issues in each of the following fields: artistic, cooperation and structuring of professional channels, territorial registration and accessibility and open to the public.

Applications for grants are open and close on March 15, 2023.

The date of the results will be announced on the DRAC website.
