The CNC (French National Centre for Cinema) has appointed Jean-Michel Jarre as the chairman of its new "Immersive Creation" commission, which has been set up to encourage the production and development of ambitious and internationally oriented creative, immersive works. The commission aims to accelerate the creation of a structured ecosystem and thus guarantee France retains firm control over its sovereignty in the virtual world. The GL events Group is the leading French company in the fields of event production and services and event venue management, in France and around the world.
„However, some of these virtual worlds also concern the sectors of events, music fashion and live performances, thus removing any social barriers or physical handicaps.“
Olivier Ginon, the group's chairman, and Jean-Michel Jarre have teamed up to achieve a Metaverse project that meets the current and future expectations of France's business, cultural and sports sectors. They both see the link between cultural events and digital creation, reality and the Metaverse, as an indissociable part of "the France of tomorrow". Jean-Michel Jarre: "The various virtual worlds are still in their infancy today. However, some of these virtual worlds also concern the sectors of events, music, fashion and live performances, thus removing any social barriers or physical handicaps." Olivier Ginon:"GL events is venturing in a whole new area of creativity, innovation and engagement. This initiative will further consolidate the group's presence in the sectors of culture, fashion, e-sports and art." The first joint project between GL events and Jean-Michel Jarre was OXYMORE, a concert that was simultaneously held physically and virtually.
