Introduction

The Caisse des Dépôts’ philanthropy policy aims to support the emergence of young and new talent in the fields of classical music, dance, architecture and landscaping.

It promotes the emergence of young choreographers across all aesthetics, as well as professionals undertaking participatory initiatives with young people in fragile situations or whom culture has “forgotten”.

Once again this year, the Caisse des Dépôts is renewing its support for the Défilé of the Lyon Dance Biennale, a parade now in its 13th edition. It will host prominent and emerging artists from 10 African countries, as part of the Africa2020 Season led by the Institut Français.

Through its philanthropy, and its faithful support of the Dance Biennale, the Caisse des Dépôts helps to ease access to arts and culture for all, through ever more inclusive creations.
