This year’s Theme is Confluence:

Like the confluence of the Loire and the Vienne which faces the village of Candes Saint-Martin, this year is under the sign of meeting and mixing. Techniques, styles, supports, inspiration, culture, there are many creative paths.

The proposals for residences and creations must be thought out in this direction. Interactive, meeting visitors and making them want to participate. Transversal, mixing techniques and creating unexpected collaborations.

As part of this edition we will create a performance space in the park, with benches, a refreshment bar and an outdoor natural stage.
All creative proposals to make this place welcoming and warm are welcome (woodwork, work with fabrics, light effects, signage, etc.).
We will also create accommodation for artists in small caravans set up in the park. These will also be base for creations.
