Festival de la Cité Foundation

The Festival is managed by a private foundation: the Festival de la Cité Foundation.

The Governing Board, chaired by Ms. Valérie Humbert, is composed of up to nine persons representing the cultural and economic sectors, Canton Vaud, and the city of Lausanne.

Ms. Myriam Kridi has been the Festival’s Director since September 2015.

The programming is conceived and realised by a five-strong team of individuals with acknowledged standing in the cultural sector, who are able to call on an external network of expertise.

The wider office consists of a team of 15 who are responsible for overseeing the Festival’s development, administration and finances, programming, production, technical aspects, publicity, food and beverage, and human resources.

Before, during and after the Festival, some 350 people – most of whom are remunerated – work to ensure the smooth running of the event.
