Founded in 2013, Les Ateliers nomades workshops have spread to numerous local cultural venues (multi-media libraries, cultural centres, gymnasiums, etc.) in partner towns like Cergy-Pontoise, Clichy-sous-Bois and Montfermeil. Inspired by their success, workshops also sprung up in Grand Paris Sud in 2016, and will be in Argenteuil until 2020, with the support of the Groupe ADP Foundation.

“Thanks to Les Ateliers nomades, we’re discovering all the imagination that children have. The operation also benefits those who run the workshops. People talk about their culture, which is a boost for them. The aim for us is really to go back to the museum with them, so that they can talk about it afterwards.
Musée Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac's mission
With its “Les Ateliers nomades” extramural workshop programme, the museum reaches out to inhabitants of Paris and surrounds. Workshops, exhibiting works elsewhere, evenings and lectures – a wide range of activities is offered throughout the region, in close collaboration with local stakeholders.
This innovative endeavour of an unprecedented scale aims to share the museum’s cultural offer outside of its walls and bring it closer to the people of Île-de-France.
