A sustainable approach

Since quite long now, the festival is engaged in a sustainable and inclusiveapproach: local and responsible suppliers, waste sorting, environmentalfootprint reduction (eco-friendly and public transportation), an integratedcommunication and an “Imprim’Vert” certifi ed printer, the use of bio-degradableor recyclable materials (plates, cutlery…).

In the same spirit, there is no VIP service, nor competition between artists….

Our commitment in term of ecology is just a part of larger effort in favour of aHuman sustainable developpement: it follows the ethical, politicaland poetical commitment that is also guiding our aesthetic choices as well asthe kind of relations we want to weave with our «audiences», our partners andwithin our association.
