Description

Le Chant des Possibles, an association founded in 1991, brings together people from various different art forms and is a training and artistic creation centre. The association was installed in "The Barn" in 1992 and is open to all forms of artistic expression. It develops multidisciplinary activities, either for the general public or specially for professionals. The site has been added to the list of French boarding houses providing over 20 beds; it includes premises that can be transformed into arts workshops, two rehearsal rooms, a technical unit, and a concert room. Le Chant des Possibles is a place for creation first and foremost, then dissemination. It enables long term projects to be entered into with artists.
