For more than 15 years, the Cannes Debates meetings, organized by the Arte Filosofia association, have brought together the most eminent specialists in politics, the media and the economy to discuss societal issues that concern French people. High-level round tables that advance and enrich the debates over 3 days.

The support of the Cannes Foundation has made it possible to make the conferences accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people thanks to a French Sign language translation, both in situ, in the Miramar room, as well as in direct broadcast on Facebook (27,199 views with the embedded translation).

Our goal is to be able to extend and generalize these practices to allow a better inclusion of the hard-of-hearing or visually impaired persons in our society, in our cultural events such as the Cannes debates meetings.
