Fes­ti­val of Le Tou­quet – Alain Godon Trophy

T he brain­child of the painter-​sculptor Alain Godon and organ­ised in con­junc­tion with the town of Le Tou­quet Paris-​Plage, the Fes­ti­val of Le Tou­quet– Alain Godon Tro­phy remains one of the cul­tural high­lights of the resort that hosts so many high qual­ity artis­tic events!

It has to be said that this 4th year of the fes­ti­val held over 7th and 8th of July 2012 in the Palais des Con­grès and the Hôtel de Ville has been a resound­ing suc­cess as an event with a really orig­i­nal con­cept of “one art­work, one chair”: it affords young artists the oppor­tu­nity to exhibit, to access exhi­bi­tion halls, to be in the media spot­light and is com­pletely free of charge – and this year, from 1,000 entrants, 598 artists have been selected and brought together.
The enor­mous organ­i­sa­tional work­load can only be imag­ined for this altru­is­tic artist, who esti­mates that each entry gen­er­ates a min­i­mum of ten emails which are then closely fol­lowed up. As ever, Alain Godon has mobilised his fam­ily and friends into action.
