Vivendi’s Social Responsibility Program, Create Joy, Brings Together “Apprentis d’Auteuil”,Orchestre à l’Ecole” and “Chance aux concours

On June 8, 2011, teenagers attending programs supported by The Vivendi Create Joy Fund will have the opportunity to meet each other, exchange experiences and share knowledge during a series of workshops organised by Create Joy. The French singer Olivia Ruiz has kindly agreed to be the event’s patron.

The workshops will focus on music, video, editing, sound recording and journalism. Teenagers from the Orchestre à l’Ecole will teach others how to play instruments. In return, the young people from Apprentis d’Auteuil will train participants in film techniques, sound recording and editing. Lastly, Chance aux concours will host an introductory workshop in journalism. These young people will then team up to interview and perform with Olivia Ruiz, thereby sharing a wonderful experience.

For over three years, Create Joy, Vivendi’s social responsibility program, has supported some thirty associations including Apprentis d’Auteuil, Orchestre à l’Ecole and Chance aux concours.
