VMSF is 25 years old.
25 Years ago we have created holiday music without borders convinced that holiday would be the ideal territory to provide children the experience of musical practice.
We thought at the time that the vacation time should be that of the game, the discovery of astonishment. We had understood that the notion of culture must be less sacred, that she had to live on the mode of sharing and the proposal rather than the injunction. Then, each year, we are extending more boundaries by opening more widely our programs to rock music and those from around the world.
Little by little the artistic curiosity of the children and youth we appeared in all its diversity and we have endeavoured to respond by creating original themes combining music with other artistic universes. At the heart of our enthusiastic trial, there was the deep desire to propose to each according to his appetite, sensitivity or curiosity, the discovery of the directories and works.
While we imagined our resorts and unique locations for meetings and artistic exchange, the explosive development of the Internet now allows everyone, at any time and in any place, to connect to the world. This now brings us to rethink the status of the Exchange to which we both wanted.
Yes, we have dedicated this quarter-century awareness of children and youth in the works through the combination of artistic practices and it was an exciting adventure. That opens up now promises to be just as much, the challenge is for the future of our young people because the availability of knowledge does not solve the issue of the desire to know. Today, the culture seems to be regarded as a consumer product like the other as if of vital and essential, it had become a mere object of entertainment.
At the time of the life network, it seems fair to put new technologies to the performing arts and contemporary creation, service of transversality between arts, to invent new practices and to welcome young people from all walks of life.
Now, freedom of creation will be even more at the centre of our artistic projects. We will seek to respond to the pressing need of expression of youth and we will invite him to follow in the footsteps of the artists, these researchers of beauty if necessary in our lives.
