CLAP, cultural and services place in Ouroux-en-Morvan

France Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

Short presentation

Creation of a sociocultural place, with post office, media library, tourist reception and cinema room (64 seats).


Develop local culture

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

Village of 650 inhabitants located in the Morvan Regional Natural Park.
Two factors made it possible to launch this project: on the one hand the success of the short film festival "Partie (s) de campagne", organized by the association Sine Qua Non, and on the other hand, the strong will of local elected officials to make culture accessible to all.

Since the post office building needs to be renovated, the municipality took the opportunity to imagine a larger socio-cultural project (cinema, library, exhibition space, information point). After having successfully raised the necessary funds from the department, the region, the Morvan park and the State, the project was able to be launched.

Actions implemented

Post office, media library, tourist reception and cinema room (64 seats).
