Five days of celebration on the programme

The Festival du Mot [Festival of the Word] takes place at La Charité-sur-Loire : The City of the Book and the Word of the Nièvre.

Every month in June, over a five day period, more than a hundred activities and other events take place that are based on the word and on Francophone language. Art and photography exhibitions, theatre shows, film screenings, dance and music performances, writing, song and street art workshops…all artforms are included. The objective: to pay a well deserved festive tribute to the Word.

encounters that get you reasoning…and resonating!

The festival also features round table events and meetings designed to provoke thought among its audience on what words mean, and the power they have. Whilst words can be used as a tool, they can also become devices that manipulate us. It all depends on how we use them!

Every year, the event welcomes more and more enthusiasts and interested observers : Artists, writers, poets, researchers, children, teenagers, adults and older people. To be explored, without fail!
