Short presentation

Scènes Associées en Coeur Hérault offers a cultural and artistic program between three territories.

Goals

The action took the form of an event focused on the dissemination of multidisciplinary shows:
propose in the heart of the winter, where the cultural dynamics are less strong and mainly turned towards the inhabitants, a roaming around 8 common artistic propositions on the whole territory.
Priority objectives:
- set up a new project over a short period
- make visible the partnerships between the 3 structures
- to push the spectators to change their habits by going on the 2 neighboring territories
- highlight the three territories / cultural sites in the heart of Hérault
Mutualizing means to achieve more ambitious projects than a single structure could not achieve alone and thus make the Coeur d'Hérault a cultural destination.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

This approach brought closer, created artistic and cultural synergies between these three neighboring territories. Throughout the year, the programs converge around regional artists and from other territories, for both coordinated tours, co-receptions for
the most ambitious proposals, and enhanced support in terms of production.

Points of vigilance, difficulties to pass through, success factors

The content of the project was unifying and bringing a dynamic on the territory. This has in fact given a continuation of the work in common between the partners of the project. The difficulty of editing the file, involving varying expenses over time (benefits, cost of wages ...). This requires rigor in the editing and monitoring of the project, working time. Finally, the very late payment required a financial base of the project holder very difficult to reach, which can put in danger the structure.
