« Helped by the experience of the Forum d’Avignon, we decided to highlight how determining an approach that puts culture at the heart of our local and national policies is. Hosting the International meetings in Bordeaux is a strong symbol to make stakeholders of the cultural, economic, and digital sectors work together. » recalls Alain Juppé, Mayor of Bordeaux and former Prime Minister.
« By locating culture within its economic and social context, the International meetings of the Forum d’Avignon are creating a passionate dialogue between creators, startupers, and decision-makers, Hervé Digne, President of the Forum d’Avignon, specifies. In an era which lacks bearings, the theme « Enterprising culture » reaffirms the singularity of culture and its role in the construction of identities in which everyone must be mobilized. »
