Call for proposals : Musical festivals in Africa and the Middle East

For 30 years the Orange Foundation has been championing musical initiatives in France. It has supported emerging musical groups, festivals and actions to promote music and widen access to it. Today, the Foundation is well-known as a patron within the music industry, particularly for jazz and classical music.

Now, it is planning to extend its international reach in partnership with Orange Group subsidiaries and is launching a call for proposals in Africa and the Middle East.
A selection committee made up of musical experts will study and select the chosen proposals in November 2018.

This call for proposals is aimed at musical festivals taking place in Africa and the Middle East in 2019, in countries in which Orange is active: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Guinea, Liberia, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tunisia and Jordan
