Amazing Futures promotes launch of new family arts and musical festival in France

New family-friendly arts and music festival launches in France, led by Louvre Curator, Guillaume Kientz.

Amazing Futures is delighted to be helping with marketing this family focused event which will take place at a French renaissance chateau, bringing arts and music to the next generation.

The festival, which has just been recognized as an official event within the European Year for Cultural Heritage 2018, will take place from Friday July 27 to Sunday July 29, 2018. Taking place in the Charente-Maritime region on the South-Western coast of France, it promises an eclectic mix of contemporary arts and photography exhibitions, TED-style talks, live music sets, wellness and foodie experiences.

 

Guillaume, 36, said: “In Dampierre I’ve been driven by my conviction that culture and the arts are the best way to engage people and get them interested in our heritage. We need to renew our social connection within the community to move forward.

Come nightfall, festival parents can sip champagne and listen to DJs while their kids chase fireflies, dance to their heart’s content, star gaze and witness a total lunar eclipse in the French countryside. Say the festival co-founders Carmela Salzano and Jill Van den Brule: “Our aim is to create a festival experience where we can reconnect as families, participate in conversations with our children and have fun. It’s about sharing the joys of summer while showing our kids that a different world is possible.”

The launch of this new festival lines up perfectly with the thinking of Guillaume Kientz, 37, a curator at the Louvre, who took on the magnificent Dampierre estate in early 2017 and managed to quickly secure Stephane Bern as a patron, a renowned French media personality appointed by President Macron to drum up support for France’s historic buildings.

An eclectic group of promoters have joined him to launch the festival, which is the first of its kind in France. The former UN staffers, social entrepreneurs, arts and media creatives identified a gap in the French festival scene for a more family friendly and socially engaged summer festival experience.
