THE BUS – Mobile cultural space

France Occitanie

Short presentation

A traveling bus strolls the Ariège roads to disseminate a cultural offer.


Disseminate a cultural offer in the most remote villages of Ariège, and in particular:
- exhibit works
- offer an artistic education
- discover the visual arts and photography
- stimulate artistic practice (workshops, residences)

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

To launch its itinerant cultural bus, the project leader, who was less than 30 years old, was able to benefit from European funding (Youth in Action program - want to act).

Target audience :
All public, especially school children

Actions implemented

The association offers an itinerant cultural program each year in the Ariège department, in the field of visual arts with a specific focus on photography. With particular attention paid to children, this program is nevertheless aimed at everyone, through residencies and creation workshops, exhibitions, mediation and training activities.
Transformed into a space for meeting and artistic discovery, Le Bus strides the Ariège roads to the most isolated territories…
Thanks to this local cultural tool, the association "Autres Directions" is committed to equal opportunities in rural areas and participates in the diversity of expressions of contemporary creation.
