Our vision as a team

Nelly : Everything that is not shared is lost”, “Tout ce qui n’est pas partagé est perdu”, as a dear friend said. Providing the French, French-speaking and Grenoble public with the opportunity to discover the works of art from New Zealand that have thrilled, moved, entertained or challenged me is what motivates me for the organisation of this festival.

Grégory : Torn between France and Aotearoa New Zealand, I eventually settled down in Grenoble for its academic life and the mountains that hemmed in the city. I learnt a lot from my experiences in both parts of the world and the FAN-ZAG is a way for me to pay a tribute to the South Pacifc and the Alps, as well as their culture and their people.

Tiphaine : I recently unpacked my bags in the pretty city of Grenoble after wandering about with my backpack. What could be more fulfilling and motivating than to participate in the organisation of a project of this scale to get to know the city of Grenoble and its people?

Micha: To further establish ourselves as a dynamic association and to be there for the men and women who travel between our two countries, we needed to mark a new highlight. With an incredibly diverse line-up, the FAN-ZAG celebrate differences and promote openness to the world.
