In the case of the shared knowledge site, the purpose is to explore, both collectively and on a small scale, artistic and cooperative tactics and practices in the urban setting. The site aims at demonstrating how art, involved in social transformation, and the everyday social and cultural activities of local people, produce informal kinds of knowledge which are part and parcel of a hands-on relationship between citizens.
The shared knowledge site occupies an urban perimeter, linking three neighbourhoods adjoining the old city centre: Saint-Michel, Sainte-Croix, and the Capucins. This perimeter, with its noticeable cultural and social mix, constitutes an extremely lively area which historically fulfills functions involving the accommodation of new arrivals in the city, a food centre (with retail and semi-wholesale markets), a cultural melting pot, with the presence of the School of Fine Arts, the Conservatory, the TnBA, and the Technical Institute (IUT) of Journalism. If you take the ‘C’ Tram line, it is possible to reach the other part of the shared knowledge site: the Grand Parc neighbourhood with large residential constructions to the northwest of the city, a utopia of modern urbanism designed in the 1950s.
Starting with a subtle exploration of the context and current situation of the city’s neighbourhoods, the artists work their way into them and, in alliance with neighbourhood volunteers, develop artistic joint ventures in strategic places, combining temporary architecture and urbanism, and the art of in situ investigation and relational art: participatory urban performances, installations, events, and spectacles. The result is the creation of new spaces and new alliances between citizens, cultural and social figures, and authors.
