Cultural Mediation : The art centre as a citizen’s place

Palais-de-Tokyo, Paris

Paris’ Palais de Tokyo, is a dynamic contemporary art space, the largest centre for contemporary artistic creation in Europe. Join us to hear from Head of Cultural Mediation, Marion Buchloh-Kollerbohm and learn how they have reinvented traditional ideas of audience engagement, participation and collaboration to engage audiences in the ‘lived experience of art’.

Thanks to the knowhow and expertise developed since 2002, the education and cultural mediation teams of the Palais de Tokyo have sought to meet the diversity of its public and their needs, and provide an inclusive and participative vision of an art centre.
