The Région Sud and live entertainment

In Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, culture is not an option: it is an essential part of life. With over 1,200 events recorded every year, our region is an exceptional cultural location.

For us, it is a political choice and a major economic and social issue: this intense cultural vitality and this creative energy are quintessential to promoting the reputation and development of our region.

The ambition and dynamic energy of our cultural policy mean that the institution makes a very active contribution towards helping the people who work in the sector. This is shown by the everyday work done by Arsud (Regional cultural agency); this work is essential for the support, organisation and distribution of entertainment throughout the region.

Scènes au Sud is an absolutely front-line tool in terms of maintaining and consolidating these efforts.

It is designed to assist event organisers, artists, technicians and institutions and lists not only the equipment devoted to hosting live entertainment (theatre, dance, music, etc.) but also the open-air venues and multi-purpose venues that offer the relevant facilities on a permanent basis. This information should allow project backers, organisers and artists to make the absolute most of the potential offered by each distribution venue.
