THE THREE 2022 PEPITES
The selected pepites will benefit from our communication network and for some of them of our artistic management skills. We have widened our communication networks and “agitated” the artists on the Internet to harvest a new artistic bunch dedicated to:
- Professionals of culture willing to highlight new talents (media, managers, producers, publishers, organizers, distributors, booking agencies…)
- Internet users interested in discovering new cultural trends.
This year the Listeners’ committee has discovered 161 projects. It has short-listed 13 projects which have made a difference thanks to their originality, their quality and/or their commitments. Then, Internet users voted to support their favourite project!
