Creative “works” with local roots
Café Culturel’s innovative and original model appealed to the Foundations. By promoting multiple forms of talent, the organization’s members have paved the way for a number of artistic initiatives in the Parisian suburbs – a challenging, complex environment. Already the Fabrique du Macadam has organized its 20th performance, demonstrating that access to art through practice clearly has an impact.
In addition to preparations leading up to each performance, the Foundations contribute to ensuring the long-term success of this original approach by setting up artistic encounters year-round. Actors and coaches teach drama workshops as well as introductory dance and music classes, putting together a final performance inspired by local ideas.
The Edmond de Rothschild Fondations were honored to support the The Café Culturel and the Fabrique du Macadam until 2012.
