CADO incubator


The CADO incubator, based in the PACA region, is a structure that supports cultural entrepreneurs from both commercial and non-commercial sectors.
The structure operates as a sort of “airlock” allowing project carriers to:
>>> Acquire managerial skills ;
>>> Lead the project into the process of local and international development;
>>> Encourage emulations and synergy between entrepreneurs using systems based on collaboration and mutualisation.
The incubator is intended as a tool for territorial development, as both partner and complement to the support systems and local stakeholders in economic development.

La couveuse se veut être un outil de développement territorial, partenaire et complémentaire des dispositifs d’appui et des acteurs locaux du développement économique.

Croisementmultidisciplinary artistic group

Croisement is a structure that seeks to encourage the creation and diffusion of transversal art forms. For this purpose, it works with a group of artists, providing them with “creation to stage” support.
Cheikh Sall, founder of the ONSTAP troupe and of the Monsieur Cheikh band, initiated the project.
Music, theatre, contemporary art, dance, corporal percussion (Step) and all other innovative practices feed the spirit of the Croisement group. Its ambition is to reveal and fine-tune each person’s projects by confronting thoughts and expressions centred on universal values such as the quest for meaning, territory, identity, transmission.
Croisement is the crossing of forms and artists, the crossing of audiences and places, the crossing of words and knowledge.
