COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING CREATIVITY AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY

For the 30th consecutive year, the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation awarded 11 grants1 to young creatives from the worlds of culture and media. They join the 307 talented young people who have already received grants from the Foundation, some of whom enjoyed remarkable success in 2019, such as Christophe Barral (Film producer winner 2011), who produced Les Misérables, attracting an audience of around 2 million in France in 2019.

Because encouraging creativity is central to what it does, the Foundation is a loyal partner of the Académie de France in Rome - Villa Médicis, which provides residential stays for artists and researchers, and Studio 13/16 at the Centre Pompidou, an arts space exclusively for teenagers.

Lastly, the Foundation has reasserted its commitment to supporting cultural diversity, in particular by means of the literary prize it has awarded jointly with the Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA) since 2013.

1 One grant per category: Documentary Filmmaker, Animated Filmmaker, Digital Artist, Writer, Print Journalist, Bookseller, Musician (jazz and classical, contemporary music), Photographer, Film Producer and Television Scriptwriter.

In 2019, the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation supported the Abbaye aux Dames "cité musicale" music centre in Saintes and its "Place aux jeunes!" scheme, which helps children and teenagers to fulfil their musical potential and acquire cultural reference points.
During the journalism internship programme, offered as part of the Festival de Saintes, two of the Foundations' grant winners gave around 15 young people the opportunity to find out about classical and baroque music through the prism of journalism and broadcasting.
