FESTIVAL YOUTH CENTRE

From the Festival's beginnings, a great deal of thought has gone in to accommodating young people in Avignon. In the 1950s the "Rencontres Internationales" started to be developed and. their organisation and management taken by CEMEA (Training Centre for learning through active methods).
In 1965 an association, the "Centres de Jeunes et de Séjour du Festival d'Avignon" was created. It consists of three founding partners: the Avignon Festival, the City of Avignon and CEMEA.

This organisation proposes cultural trips from 4 to 10 days for teenagers from 14 to 17 years old and for adults. Reception is organised in schools. All the trips offer artistic initiation activities, meetings with artists and performing arts professional as well as special admission conditions for the shows.

To find out more or to subscribe to one of the cultural programmes, contact CEMEA
Information and registration until end of June
