For 3 years, we have been providing financial support for the "Tous en scène" programme, a musical project initiated by the CRÉA in Aulnay-sous-Bois with 8 towns in Seine-Saint-Denis.
« Tous en scène » is the fruit of 100 pupils from the last two years of primary school in the Seine-Saint-Denis department practising together as a choir for over a year.
On Saturday 23 June at the Théâtre Jacques Prévert in Aulnay-sous-Bois, they performed a fairy tale set to music entitled "While the wolf’s away" for their families, professional musicians, teachers, and mayors and councillors from the 8 towns in Seine-Saint-Denis.
The French Minister of Culture, Françoise Nyssens, attended and congratulated and encouraged the children’s efforts and those of their choirmasters.
Yacub, Sabina and Alexandra, three young budding artists taking part in the project express themselves just before going on stage.
Au spectacle du @CREAAULNAY, qui mène depuis 30 ans un remarquable projet d’éducation artistique et culturelle à @AulnaySousBois ! Quelle énergie et quel enthousiasme après seulement un an de pratique mêlant chant et danse ! Bravo aux jeunes artistes et à toute l’équipe ! pic.twitter.com/clWPxfDcw4

Didier Grojsman, founder and conductor of the CRÉA orchestra tells us what he believes in:
"The values of respect, open-mindedness and solidarity are at the heart of the CRÉA project. Creating social bonds through artistic activities that are open to all."
This artistic and human project corresponds to the priorities of our Foundation which identifies and encourages cultural mediation projects that combine artistic creativity and solidarity for people with no access to culture.
