ARTIST RESIDENCIES

The Saint-Denis Festival is part of the community and it has run educational events every year for the past 25 years for different audiences : primary school, secondary school, college and music school students, associations and amateurs.

What makes it unique ? It hosts ensembles in artist residencies every year and makes them the first point of contact in its introduction to music.

The Saint-Denis Festival is hosting 2 artist residencies in 2022.
