The second edition started in September 2014. The group is composed of about 25 persons who meet every other Friday afternoon at la Criée. In addition to the artistic workshop, they discover the theatre from both on and off stage, attending three plays and meeting the people hard at work behind the scenes to learn about their trades. Finally, participants benefit from personalized counseling from partnering social centers.
In June 2015, participants will perform for friends and family while the public will receive a printed catalogue with texts written by all of the participants. The workshops and performance allow reflection on the future, new possibilities and catalyze new momentum in their lives.
Artistic creation and social impact
By partnering with a well-known cultural institution and social centers, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations are reaffirming their conviction that art and creation are powerful channels for social empowerment.
By mixing backgrounds and generations and, challenging the participants to exchange and build something new together, the Foundations are promoting engaged citizens and a more collaborative society.
