During the month of March 2023, meetings are given, by the DRAC Grand Est and the association "Scènes et territoires", in several territories of the Great East, to young artists, host structures and professionals for days of meetings and exchanges around the Youth ESTivants scheme.


The Cultural Summer is a national event of the Ministry of Culture initiated in 2020, implemented by the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs in the regional territory.
The DRAC Grand Est thus accompanied 201 projects and mobilized €1.18 million as part of the 2022 Cultural Summer to culturally irrigate the entire Great East.

Artistic residencies «Jeunes ESTivants»

Throughout the summer, selected young artists, graduates of Higher Education of Culture and representing all disciplines, set up their workshop for a few weeks in municipalities in rural areas or in areas covered by city policy. These aspiring artists thus benefit from a first professional experience, combining and mixing times of shared creation and mediation, promoting encounters and experimentations with the inhabitants of the territories.
