Nathalie semon Copyright Patrice TerrazNathalie Semon

Nathalie Semon is the initiator of many of ARTE's events in the city. She has developed multiple and often unprecedented collaborations with actors in the cultural and creative sectors, involving both the circulation of audiovisual works, mainly documentaries, and meetings with filmmakers. These events contribute to the influence of the European cultural channel ARTE on all audiences.
After studying comparative literature, she trained in the film and audiovisual production sector. With a degree from Sciences Po, she is an expert in cultural public policy and trained in private fundraising at the Essec Philanthropy Chair in Paris.
If culture is above all this experience that puts us intimately in touch with the world and ourselves, her encounters make her always look for ways to give shape to new projects, in an approach of transmission and openness to works. She is in charge of development and cultural partnerships at ARTE France.
