Bourges avenir ?

Chancellery Neighbourhood


Artistic residence in the Chancellerie neighbourhood with the aim of initiating creative work in cooperation with the initiatives and creative potential of the inhabitants.

Actions realised :

  • Creation of a community garden with the Social Centre
  • Artistic performance with teenagers from the Point Rencontre Jeunes : descent of the river from the neighbourhood to the city centre, feet in the water and in street clothes. Photographs : Hervé Dangla, HDFS collective
  • Utopian urbanism workshops to collectively imagine possible transformations of the neighbourhood.
  • Opening of an urban exploration agency : Bourges avenir ?, a temporary place for urban prospective, exchange and creation to stimulate and make visible our imagination and ideas on the topic of the desirable city. A place for exhibitions, meetings, debates and interventions, this small urban imaginary factory proposes actions of poetic exploration of the city.

At the crossroads of art, territories and populations, our approach aims to promote the transition to sustainable, shared and welcoming cities, by proposing alternative ways of imagining and building our living environment and by exploring new forms of public space.
