Antoine Agoudjian awarded for his work in Nagorno-Karabakh

The 2021 jury of the Humanitarian Visa d’Or of the International Committee of the Red Cross awarded the French photojournalist Antoine Agoudjian for his memory work on the Armenian people. The photojournalist notably documented the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh in the fall of 2020. The distinction, created in 2011 and endowed with € 8,000, relates this year to the war in the city and its consequences on populations.



The Vieilles Charrues festival will be held

Initially planned with a seated configuration, the Vieilles Charrues festival will be able to stand, still with a capacity of 5,000 people per evening, from July 8 to 18 in Carhaix (Finistère), the organization announced on Wednesday June 16. “The artists will be delighted, we will relive a festival very close to what we usually experienced”, said Jérôme Tréhorel, director of the festival. From July, standing concerts were in theory authorized but the Vieilles Charrues had kept the seated format in the face of the impossibility of applying the 4 m gauge.2 by festival-goer. Work with the prefecture made it possible to relax this constraint.
