ArtCOP21 at the Gaîté lyrique
Headquarters of culture throughout COP21

1 – 11 December 2015

For 10 days, COAL and the Gaîté lyrique offer an in-depth and varied program that will explore the cultural challenges of climate change.

On this occasion, more than 250 artists, professionals, scientists, thinkers and doers come together to imagine other narratives and perspectives to reinvent new worlds. Meetings, interviews, a professional workshop, screenings and performances punctuate COP21, making the Gaîté lyrique the headquarters of culture for climate.

The regular appointments on the Plateau Media also raise this issue while a resources space (books, magazines, films, documentaries) allows to deepen all discussions.

With: Tomás Saraceno, Encore Heureux, Eva Jospin, Frédéric Ferrer, Kevin Buckland, Gideon Mendel, Patrick Degeorges, HeHe, Emilie Hache, Mel Chin, George Steinmann, Lucy + Jorge Orta, Heidi Quante & Alicia Escott, Jeremy Leggett…
