The Story Factory

Throughout the day

Come discover The Story Factory! This new educational and participatory space, inspired by tinkering practices, invites you to ask questions, understand and develop a story in a fun, creative way. During the Journées de la culture, mediators will be on site throughout the day to talk about the various challenges: "What’s the story behind this object from the past? How are these two artefacts related? What can I come up with to solve this general problem?” Association, modification, invention, creation, prototyping – the story will be in your hands!

Not to be missed!
