Each year, the Aide à la création helps to accompany some fifty texts, through, in particular, their circulation in francophone and international networks, as well as to promote the influence of their authors. The Commission de l'Aide nationale à la création de textes dramatiques met on May 9 and 10, 2023 to nominate the new winners. She selected the following texts:

National support for the creation of dramatic texts

The mission of Aide à la création de textes dramatiques is to identify and accompany contemporary French-speaking playwrights. It was created in 1947 and since 2007 Artcena has been coordinating it by delegation from the Ministry of Culture.
This device is an encouragement and support for the first stage performances of these works, and supports the path of their authors through financial assistance and enhancement actions with the actors of the network of contemporary writings: institutions, places, festivals, publishers, companies.
