With the 2020 circumstances and the sanitary measures that are destabilising the cultural world, the Société du Grand Paris wants to largely support the artists who live and work in the region. With a grant of up to 7,000€, the projects selected by a jury favour encounters between all audiences and the artworks proposed in the public space or in territorial venues of the Grand Paris. Aimed at actors from all creative disciplines, this call for projects looks to first and foremost support singular initiatives, in a subtle and agile way, and in full compliance with the current sanitary measures.
