Creative residencies in the Accès culture network
As pioneers of cultural democratization, the Maisons de la culture have long supported professional arts companies. By welcoming them into their space to develop various projects, the Maisons have at times helped to alleviate the shortage of resources in the arts community. Some 70 projects or 400 residency days are offered each year in the Accès culture network. Municipal action is not limited strictly to dissemination, but also includes mediation and guidance as well as incubation and residency support.
