FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL CONTRE LES VIOLENCES
EDITION 2020 - CANCELLED
It is with a heat heart that we regret to announce the cancellation of the International Festival Against Violence - scheduled for November 2020.
We had bet on a beautiful meeting, big shows, interesting conferences, incredible animations ... Unfortunately the evolution of the epidemic will have been the death of our hopes.
Thus, due to the current sanitary situation and the government measures taken in recent days, the reception of artists, national and international speakers, the reception of public, and all festival's activities are jeopardize. This is why, as we are responsible for the evolution of the sanitary situation, we are not in position to maintain this event.
We would like to sincerely thank all the artistic teams, the staff who prepared this festival with all their soul, as well as our partners who accompanied us in this adventure.
The FICV 2020 is therefore, with great regret, cancelled.
We look froward to see you again next year !
