A Year at La Criée: a successful first edition that ends up by a friendly celebration in Marseille

6/17/2014 - Arts

On June 14, participants, artists, partners, friends and families were invited at the Théâtre de la Cité (Marseille) to end up the experience.

For the first time in Marseille, La Criée - national French theatre - has developed a complete program for targeting unemployed or underserved people of all ages and from multi cultural backgrounds. Testimonies, workshops and success stories were revealed to the public throughout a 30-minute video.

The celebration culminates with a light lunch in which participants and artists shared feelings and memories to the others while distributing a book relating their year at La Criée.

By renewing their support, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations are reaffirming their conviction that art and creation are powerful channels for social empowerment.
