Montendre is a lovely village in the sout-west of France, located in Charente-Maritime. Standing between vestiges of his medieval castel, this little area is a hub of business, administrative and touritic activities. The municipality welcomes, since 1993, the association Maison des Bateleurs-Solidarités Jeunesses and the welcome center. In 2001, the municipality created the « FREE Music Festival », an artistic event with contemporary music. This festival is a source of development and local dynamism, which contributes to the highlight of the municipality of Montendre and his rural territories. In the last few years, La Maison des Bateleurs’s volunteers have participated to the setting of the event’s carpark. This year, we would like to go further in the contribution of this key event. To create an international workcamp will bring an intercultural dimension to this artistic dynamic and intergenerational event. It will be the 19th edition, located in an unusual landscape : the Montendre Lake, from 21rst to 23rd of June 2019.
