CANNES, the most famous artistic city, will host the first Olymp’Arts, from 2nd – 9th July, 2021

With the agreement of the City, this historical rebirth (566 BC: First Olympic Arts of Ancient Greece) has been postponed until 2021, which corresponds to the third year after the last sports olympiad (PyeongChang 2018), so as to respect the calendar of the Ancient Greeks.

Because of the success encountered amongst the artists and the world public to revive these Art Olympiads, based on new, exclusive  criteria, we have decided,  by adding 2 supplementary years and at the same time respecting the original calendar, to give an opportunity to more countries and artists to participate.

The city of CANNES guarantees us world-wide repercussion, with the support of the most important artistic, institutional and political personalities, both local and national, and that of the Reed MIDEM (MIDEM – MIP TV – MIP COM)

We invite you to visit this page regularly, as well as the rules for each discipline, which will give you the latest updates, news, in addition to the key dates regarding the organization of this world premiere.

In 2019, several important events will take place: press conference, the televised drawing of lots for the crowdfunding, and other announcements. They will be indicated on this same page.


A call for crowdfunding will be launched in late April or early May 2018. It will last 60 days. Stays in Cannes will be offered, as well as other benefits, for the duration of the Arts Olympiad, and we will communicate the useful link to access this call very soon.
