Les Rencontres d’Arles Les Rencontres d’Arles

For nearly 10 years, Aurélie de Lanlay, Deputy Director of the Rencontres d'Arles, has been involved in the development of the festival. She particularly supports projects aimed at introducing image reading, and is the driving force behind workshops that help children aged 6 to 14 develop a critical and active perspective, as well as the creation of the image education platform: Observer/Voir. Coming from the museum sector, she initiated the work to enhance the collection of 3,500 photographs from the Rencontres d'Arles, as well as efforts on the organization and gathering of festival archives. As an integral part of the festival's event cycles, she works to make these events accessible to everyone throughout the year (conferences, symposiums, interviews, readings, concerts). Convinced of the richness of cross-disciplinary perspectives, she also contributes to breaking down barriers between disciplines within the festival by fostering dialogue between photography, literature and ecology.
