THE THREE 2023 PEPITES
The results of the 12th edition of the Afro Pepites Show!
The 1st online Arts Market (e-Arts Market)
The great discoveries identified by the committee and the web users!
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 153 projects. It has short-listed 12 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!
