We have been commissioned by the Community of Montesquieu Municipalities to work on the Territorial Contract for Artistic and Cultural Education COTEAC : a 3-year programme of artistic and cultural actions benefiting school, after-school and youth structures.
The Tourbus-Landscaping project is aimed at teenagers, specifically 13-18 year olds. The idea is to question them on their perception and practices of the territory according to 2 themes : travel and landscape.
We want to know and understand the means they have or request to move around, the difficulties they encounter, the reasons for their mobility : friends, sport, family, conveniences…? We want to know the way they look at their environment, their daily landscapes and their activities. Do they consider their territory as urban or rural, do they feel disinterested or on the contrary curious ? We want to know what they have identified about their territory, and what more they would like to find there.
We propose different offbeat and playful experiences that combine performances, games and workshops. We produce utopian photomontages inspired by the ideas and desires collected. The restitution of this work, in the form of an exhibition, took place during a festive and musical evening animated with our accomplices the Collectif Genre, in the presence of the young participants.
