At the time that OSI-Paris first got involved in the festival, the crumbling barriers between east and west needed a stronger push to in order to completely collapse, according to Annette Laborey, the director of OSI-Paris."People, and young people in particular, needed to 'get out' and see what the outside world looked like, to speak openly and freely with each other and with people from the West," she recalls.
Since its inception, the festival has become an important role model for rural and community development both in France and the invited countries, according to Laborey.In addition to the artists and musicians who attended the 1998 festival, a group of Georgian scientists and farmers participated in a series of workshops with their French counterparts.This is a trend that Laborey thinks will continue in the future.
"We consider the festival a useful example of how a local, rural community can fight problems it faces with voluntary engagement rather than with official sponsorship-an example for the guests," she says.
