Media Partnership


ARTE is a French-German channel, which purpose is to bring European nations close together through culture; at the core of ARTE relies the idea that culture, arts and science are the very cement of understanding and the seeds of friendship between peoples. This unique television channel releases bilingual versions of all of its programs designed for French, German and European viewers.

ARTE commits to achieve its cultural mission in the digital world, whereby it therefore spreads its strong values by adapting its programs to the various screens, with enriched contents through 5 web service offerings (ARTE Creative, ARTE Concert, ARTE Future, ARTE Info, ARTE Cinéma). As a pioneer in development and digital contents, ARTE aims at being a cultural European reference on the Internet by defending a supply rather than a demand logic, by fostering discovery rather than repetition and by always giving priority to an editorial and human recommendation over the use of automated algorithms.

As a partner of the Forum d’Avignon for several years now, ARTE has therefore renewed its support to this event by joining this unprecedented initiative of a 100% Data cultural forum. Our team will cover the event on the new digital offer dedicated to news (ARTE Info) and Agnès Lanoë, the Director of Foresight Strategy, will lead a round table on cultural data.
