La criée - bande noir


Territories in the Making is a platform focusing on art and creativity in the city of Rennes, the Ille-et-Vilaine département and the Brittany Region. Four working strategies have been chosen with a view to a lasting territorial impact for art projects and solidly based links with residents.

1-The educational strategy, with artists’ residencies in schools in local Priority Education Areas. Lasting several months, these residencies will aim at heightening pupils’ awareness of art while enabling the artist to produce a work.

2-The twinning strategy, involving educational and leisure facilities in Rennes and its metropolitan area, and in the Ille-et-Vilaine département.

3-The artwork production strategy, based on a specific territory. For example, for the season 2008–2009 La Criée, in partnership with Champs Libres, enabled repeats in various Rennes municipalities of Véronique Aubouy’s filming of people reading Proust aloud.

4-The partnership strategy with health establishments aiming to increase patients’ access to culture. In 2009–2010 La Criée will be working in tandem with the Guillaume Régnier psychiatric centre.
