School of Impatiences

06.29 → 07.03 2023 – Dieppe


L’École des Impatiences is a festival that gives pride of place to debates on ideas, contemporary thought, the visual arts and literature, based on our ecological, social and artistic impatiences. Screenings, concerts, performances, readings, workshops, plant walks, debates and conferences. Using innovative meeting formats, the aim is to unite a broad public as much as to collectively elaborate the world to come, accompanied by the thinking of artists, intellectuals and writers. A “school without walls”, free and open to all, based in Dieppe, Normandy. L’Ecole des Impatiences is the evolution of the Diep~haven festival.
