Presentation

  • Context, issues : Since 2015, the Sillon, Stage agreed for the theater in the public space in Clermont l'Hérault and in the Clermontais, the OCVH / The Sonambule, project dedicated to the current music on the Valley of the Hérault, and the community of communes Lodévois and Larzac have set up a common workspace, named SCENES ASSOCIEES EN COEUR HERAULT,
    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.
    The Associated Scenes project has been supported since its creation by the County Council of Hérault as part of the Pays de Hérault Contract.
    At the beginning of the year 2017, Saturday, January 14, a highlight and reinforcing the process of Associated Scenes in the Heart of Herault took place on the territory of the country, part of a background work that we lead year-round and long-term.
    The high point at Open Heart production of Associated Scenes was thus a structuring element of a more global project of irrigation of the territory at the scale of the Country. In 2017, it was an opportunity to assert even more the necessary circulation between the three programs, to push more widely to the circulation of public especially via the bus shuttles. 
  • 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. 
  • Targeted audience : Inhabitants 
  • Actions implemented : 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 proposals on the whole territory.

Conditions of success

  • 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.
