The artists hosted in Martigues will come together to pool, collect and develop best practices for the artistic pedagogy of children. This workshop / scenario will take place with the participation of the Neighborhood Houses of the City of Martigues and their audiences.

This experimental workshop will take place between July 9 and August 9 and a public restitution day will be organized at the end of the residency, to allow the public of Martigues and the surrounding area to meet the artists but also to elected officials from medium-sized French cities to discuss the establishment of a similar project in their municipalities, in order to create an international network of artist-educators at the service of the populations.
Opening period (s)Friday 16 July 2021 at 8 pm.
Artists welcome.
