I'm from Arles and extremely attached to my town and to what happens here. The Méjan and Actes Sud are now more active than ever throughout the year, what with the cinema, the bookshop, exhibitions and concerts. We have been producing the Rencontres catalogues for a very long time and this, above all, is a means for us to pledge our support for and loyalty to what is an important event and provide the knowhow we have at our disposal. I don't think of it in terms of business. Moreover, the Méjan Association serves as a patron, even if only at a modest level. It contributes some money and offers free access to the exhibitions it puts on to those with Rencontres tickets.
