Description of the Project:
November 13 2015, The ‘Bataclan’, a concert hall in Paris is attacked during a performance. An ideological attack against France, its culture and way of life.
One month after these tragic events, the French people were still traumatized. In term of attendance, the decline nearly reach 80%.
In only 10 days, working alongside for free, printers, producers, mobilized and a real act of solidarity appeared. A symbolic slogan that called for every Parisian, every French person to return to performances in a sign of resistance and struggle against the fear. Concert halls and theaters decided to unite and change the name of their shows to one unique slogan : MA PLACE EST DANS LA SALLE (MY PLACE IS AT THE SHOW) : More than 150 shows changed their name.
We changed billboards and posters by adding our slogan. More than 250 artists invited to see the show have posted video from their own social media accounts to help spark viral word-of-mouth and fuel media coverage for the launch of the campaign.
Target was the French people that used to go to out (theater, ballet, shows) but not only. We aimed at 66 millions french people and foreigners which are supporting them as well.
DURING THE NIGHT OF DECEMBER 18: All the shows were fully booked. Parisians shared through social medias their pictures of the posters and the shows. We relayed it all night long and mass media publications joined also the movement.
> #MaPlaceEstDansLaSalle became #1 Trending Topic on Twitter. Even the mayor of Paris and the French Minister of Culture tweeted about the campaign. The operation resonated beyond our borders and we received messages of solidarity from all over the world.
