The time has come for preparations on the Place des Pradettes, in Toulouse, this Thursday, September 23. Indeed, from September 24 to 26 will be held the festival “Saisons d’elles”, a true hymn to feminism and citizenship.
Organized by nearly sixty volunteers, the “Saisons d’elles “ was born from the LGBT militant association Les Folles Saisons, in the Pradettes district. For six years now, the festival has been promoting strong and inspiring values, among which the feminist struggle is in pole position. Sonia Ruiz, head of the festival, fervently describes this constant struggle: “Equality does not yet exist, especially in the world of the arts. The opportunity was given to us here to highlight, for a few days, exclusively female artists who deserve to be highlighted. “.
This year, many of them have answered the call. Through a musical, festive and intellectual event open to all, the opportunity is given to spectators to share an exclusive moment with established artists, such as Lio – the headliner of this year – but also promising artists, such than Mel Cords, a talent in the making from Jean Jaurès University.
“The objective is to introduce as many local artists as possible by mooring them to headliners. Experience mingles with novelty to offer visitors an auditory and visual richness “ adds the manager.
More than an intergenerational mix, the festival “Saison of them “ it is also a mixture of cultures. “On a representation of the World with a capital M in all its splendor. What we sought above all was diversity, commitment and militancy, whether with artists like Equidad Barès or Samëli “ conclusion with passion Sonia Ruiz.
