How are the events of Normandie Impressionniste selected?

Normandie Impressionniste is inviting cultural and touristic partners to submit projects for the conception of the programming. They are then presented to the scientific and artistic council, which makes its decisions about the proposals based on several guidelines:
▶︎ their fit with the guiding principles of Normandie Impressionniste
▶︎ their scientific and artistic quality
▶︎ their novel, innovant, relevant and original nature
▶︎ how they are presented to the public and the quality of the outreach
▶︎ the site(s) where the projects will be presented
▶︎ the territorial presence of the propositions in terms of the territory of Normandy and the image of its diversity
▶︎ their possibility to travel across the territory of Normandy and beyond
▶︎ their capacity for a national and international outreach
▶︎ their participatory or partnership-based approach.
