Missions and objectives

Since 1996, our non-profit organisation has been supporting and promoting participatory arts practices through committed action at the crossroads of culture, informal education, and social and solidarity-based economy. We create projects which illustrate our beliefs such as “Place à l’Art” or “Boulègue”, the participatory television scheme in the 3rd district of Marseille. Building on our large network of independent artists, we co-develop participatory artistic projects in order to meet the requests of our beneficiaries. Finally, we work with our members through coaching, training schemes and equipment loan. Les Têtes de l’Art is located in the PACA region but it is also very much open to the outside. We deal with more and more partners in France, Europe, and the Mediterranean (youth mediterranean program: area so as to help spread a fresh and positive outlook.
