Mission Entreprendre dans la culture in Belgium

The French Ministry of Culture (Direction générale des médias et des industries culturelles - DGMIC) is calling for applications to form a French "Entreprendre dans la culture" delegation of around 15 entrepreneurs from the cultural and creative industries to take part in the Kikk festival in Namur, from October 24 to 28, 2022.

Participation in this event will enable us to discover the Belgian cultural market, facilitate market access, prospect for potential customers, and develop strong partnerships in both territories.

The Kikk festival is an international event for digital and creative culture that aims to explore the interactions between art, science and technology: creative computer code, art, web and UX design, AI, data visualization, storytelling, research, interactive experience, graphic design, motion design, VR, XR, and more. 

Ahead of the Kikk festival's professional and artistic program, the French Ministry of Culture, the French Embassy in Belgium, the Office franco-québécois pour la jeunesse and pali pali (Accélérateur de projets culturels, sociaux et solidaires) are organizing three days from October 24 to 26, dedicated to discovering the Belgian ecosystem, meeting resource people and working together. These meetings will take place at the Grand Hospice, a rehabilitated and open temporary occupation space welcoming both workers and the general public. A virtual meeting will be held beforehand to target the needs of each selected company. 

One day will be devoted specifically to immersive and mixed realities.

The cultural entrepreneurs selected after the call for applications will benefit from the following services: pro pass for the Kikk professional meetings, transport to Brussels, accommodation for the duration of the mission (4 nights). Meals and expenses not listed are not included.

Applicants must be professionals or entrepreneurs involved in a CCI with activities related to the themes addressed at the Kikk festival and immersive realities.
