Metissages Urbains

 

Born aboard idAction Mobile in 2014, the inclusive artistic residencies Métissages Urbains are collaborative artistic creations realised by and for all of idAction Mobile's participants, invited artists and citizens.

What is it?

Métissages Urbains is for artists working in our common space: the streets.  Accompanied by a facilitator from Exeko, the artists co-create art pieces (painting, sound, projection, architecture…) with passersby in order to open a space of exchange and improbable encounters between all citizens. Each project stimulates our creativity, and invites us to learn and to exchange our ideas!

  • Instigate new spaces for creation
  • Open mixed dialogues about art
  • Stimulate exchanges and participation amongst citizens
