Artists’ support

Having regularly been approached by artists and cultural operators in an informal way, the association formalized his second department Artists’ Support in 2010. It aims is to share its resources and expertise with cultural stakeholders in Marseille and the region.

Today, managed by a team of permanent staff, the division collaboratively develops a customized path with the supported organizations and individuals in order to support the structuring and sustainability of artistic and cultural projects in the regional territory.

Custom individual meetings

Les Têtes de l’Art offers easily accessible support:

— throughout the year
— free of charge
— without selection
— tailored to the needs of each organization and artist

Specialized in the artistic and cultural field, this support is customized in terms of time, frequency, and the format of the meetings.

The steps to follow are indicated here

Beyond enriching support paths, this network collaboration regularly leads to joint initiatives:

Immersion cinéma
Mon projet d'entreprise Économie Sociale et Solidaire (My Social and Solidarity Economy Business Project)
Dispositif Local d'Accompagnement - DLA (Local Support System)

Les Têtes de l’Art are involved in the #I-CI Immersion-Cinema project.

As part of the project initiated by La Réplique and in partnership with the Sud Region, Telfrance, ERACM, and casting directors from the region, Les Têtes de l’Art support young people aged 16 to 19 on the path to professionalization in the fields of cinema and acting.
