La Fabrique du Regard
LE BAL's educational platform La Fabrique du Regard exists to use images to increase young people's visual awareness and make them more conscious of their capacities and of the world around them.
Involving young people | training teams
LE BAL's educational platform La Fabrique du Regard trains young people in and through images. By becoming actors of their own vision, they become aware of the world around them and of their capacity to get involved in it. Since its creation in 2008, La Fabrique du Regard has been carrying out in-depth work with young people in urban policy neighbourhoods, priority education networks, and in areas far from cultural and artistic facilities.
Since 2008, 24,000 young people, 1,320 teachers, 550 artists and actors from the educational and cultural community in 275 neighbourhoods, from primary to high school, or within social structures, young people are confronted with different points of view, sharpen their eye on the formal bias of images, experiment with the different stages of their production, distribution and reception and participate in a collective creation project with invited artists.
The creations made collectively by the young people with the guest artists as part of Regards croisés, Mon journal du monde, Mon Œil !, Culture(s) de Demain and Que faire ? programmes are presented during a public exhibition at LE BAL or in a dedicated space (la Fémis). This is an opportunity for students from the various programmes to discover the work carried out by La Fabrique du Regard as a whole and to reflect on their experience.
Discover: "Voir et être vu-e-s, l'image pour exister ?", the website for the restitution of the creations made by the young people and the artists invited in 2021-2022.
"La Fabrique du Regard à la maison", a blog for young people, parents, educators and all concerned viewers, whatever their age, who aims to take a new look at the world around us based on the creations of the young people working with La Fabrique du Regard.
