But what are the Rencontres d’Astaffort? In less than 15 years, the Rencontres d’Astaffort (created by Francis Cabrel) have firmly established themselves in the national cultural landscape and in the French-speaking world. Original and unique, many artists claim that they were one of the major stages – even the starting point – of their professional career.

In addition to the structuring and formative action individual, they allow the collective emergence of artistic projects. The arrival in 2006 of the La Poste corporate foundation and the desire to develop the project gave birth to the Center des writings de la Chanson. A Center, in a rural environment, which is based on the Meetings but which develops new training and support systems in the service of professional projects. Alongside its primary mission of professional training, the Center des Ecritures is developing systems:

– assistance with creation, through the organization of two creative residencies per year and the implementation of place of an incentive prize;

– dissemination aid to give visibility to young performers (development of the dissemination network, presentation of young talents at major festivals in the framework of partnership operations and the creation of prizes);

– promoting knowledge of the song by setting up a documentary fund and cultural action programs which participate in the consolidation audiences and careers of supported artists.
