& Key note speakers & experts
For 8 years I have been a producer with artists using digital and technological tools. I support them in all stages of creation as well as in their search for dissemination, financing and variations of projects. As a producer, I have a role of intermediary between the artists and all the other actors of the cultural sphere: presenters, co-producers, institutions,… I was thus able to acquire an in-depth knowledge of the expectations of each one but also of the contradictions and misunderstandings that inevitably arise. I worked for several years in Montreal and Paris and have been based in Brussels for 6 years. I have in-depth knowledge of the different cultural players in France, Belgium and Canada. I have carried out complex art projects in the United States, Korea, Japan, Russia and many countries in Europe. For 3 years, I have also been an independent exhibition curator specializing in digital arts. I curate events for a wide variety of contexts: STRP, an established digital arts festival in the Netherlands, Smart Cities in Brussels, a light festival in Leuven, an exhibition in a contemporary art gallery in New York, … I was confronted with the question of co-creation from my school career. During my DSAA Art and Communication Techniques at the Estienne School (Paris), all projects for two years are carried out in groups made up of complementary profiles. So the very heart of this Master is to get people with artistic, marketing, technical, technological, literary training to work together. In 2018 and 2019 I took part in monitoring diplomas at the Ecole des Gobelins (Paris) in Master Interaction Design. This training is also made up of half of “tech” profiles (developers, programmers, ..) and the other half of “creatives”.
I began my career at the European Parliament in Brussels in 2004 with the Vice-President of the European Parliament after graduating from the Institute of Political Studies in Strasbourg. Within the framework of the Culture Commission, I followed the subjects of regulation and financing of European creation, and contributed to the creation of the Lux Prize, European Parliament prize for cinema. In 2009, I joined the French ecosystem of Scintillo, and decided to develop my knowledge of funding mechanisms for cultural industries by applying them to the issues of Belgian cultural entrepreneurship. As part of this association, I run a group of companies that I develop on the territory of Brussels-Capital. These companies participate in the financing of culture through the crowdfunding platform KissKissBankBank; to its production through the Wrong Men film production company created in 2012 by Benoît Roland and Alexandra Boussiou; and its distribution through See U, an industrial wasteland of 35,000 square meters located in Ixelles and dedicated to sustainable development. Since 2016, my group has strengthened its activities in the Tech / Start-up field with the creation of Creatis, the first Belgian business incubator dedicated to the cultural and creative industries and a consulting company in particular in charge of the creation and development missions of the code 19 school (educational franchise of the French school 42) or the overhaul of the strategy of Maltem, a group of a thousand consultants in digital innovation and transformation. I am also one of the founders of the contemporary art fair Poppositions, and teach “new models of culture” at IHECS in a Masters in Sociocultural Animation and Permanent Education (Masters 1 and 2). In 2020 all of these activities are brought together in the Pali Pali brand. My entrepreneurial expertise complements Juliette’s specific artistic expertise. As part of Creatis, I have supported several digital entrepreneurs such as Ohme or Magic Street. And others are hosted at See U. Furthermore, I carry out support programs for cultural entrepreneurs locally in Brussels and Charleroi, but also with international projects in South Korea and China.
