Founded in 2004, the FEPS - National Federation for Public and Private Performing Arts Employers - unites employers’ organisations representing the public and private sectors of the performing arts field.
 
Through its members, the FEPS represents more than 1000 arts organisations and companies that create, produce and distribute performances in all artistic disciplines - classical, contemporary and popular music, theatre, opera, dance, circus, cabarets, street performance, etc., ranging from traditional to new and alternative art forms - that reach a large and diverse audience.
 
The long-term relationships established among the members of the federation are essential both for the recognition of the arts organisations they represent, and for the diversity of French artistic and cultural expression.
