Since the outset, La ville de Paris has been right behind LE BAL, allowing it to move into a former ballroom from the Roaring Twenties. It supports the whole of LE BAL programs, including the Fabrique du Regard's outreach activities towards young Parisians mostly from schools in underprivileged Priority Education. LE BAL has been awarded the "Art pour grandir" label.
The Ministère de l'Éducation Nationale, de la Jeunesse et des Sports assists La Fabrique du Regard in its activities: workshops, training, automnal seminars and Les Carnets du BAL.
The Direction du Numérique pour l'éducation supports the development of ERSILIA and participates in the valorisation of the platform. ERSILIA is accessible on Éduthèque, the Ministry's portal for educational, cultural and scientific resources. Since 2021, Le BAL has benefited from a FONJEP grant to develop the association's research partnerships.
The Agence nationale de la cohésion des territoires, with the support of the Ministère de la Ville, supports the training programme of La Fabrique du Regard, via the ERSILIA platform (www.ersilia.fr) in three french regions: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Hauts-de-France and Île-de-France.

Winner of the AMI 2022 "Tooling digital mediation" initiated by the Agence Nationale de Cohésion de Territoires ("ANCT") within the framework of the France Relance investment plan, the ERSILIA project led by La Fabrique du Regard aims at equipping and training the territory's actors and facilitating access to the online platform: production of online content, training in several stages on the territory and technical developments to widen the accessibility
Recipient of the "Numérique inclusif, numérique en commun" (inclusive digital, digital in common) scheme in 2022 supported by the Banque des Territoires Groupe Caisse des Dépôts, LE BAL, via its educational centre La Fabrique du Regard, aims to use the image, media and information education workshops conducted with young people in the Île-de-France region to disseminate their digital and artistic creations via the ERSILIA platform (www.ersilia.fr).
The C.F.C. Centre français d’exploitation du droit de copie partners with La Fabrique du Regard for a large-scale project over three years (2021-2024). The "Pics up speak up" project includes workshops on image education and citizenship for young people and adults responsible for young people, the creation of digital educational tools and event days dedicated to education.
Since 2020, Alliance pour l'Education - United Way has been supporting Mon Œil !, a digital creation, image education and citizenship project aimed at young high school students in all fields of study, from neighbourhoods located in priority education zones. LE BAL and its educational centre La Fabrique du Regard are involved in Défi Jeunesse, a multi-stakeholder programme run by Alliance pour l'éducation - United Way, which aims to promote equal opportunities in access to informed career choices. The Youth Challenge actions focus on the development of a better knowledge of oneself, of others and of the professional world, to prepare young people to make their first choices for the future.
Le Club Entreprises du BAL est un laboratoire de réflexion, de création et d'action qui réunit entreprises et dirigeants partageant les valeurs du BAL et soutenant son ambition d'inscrire résolument les arts visuels dans une réflexion sur nos sociétés. L'énergie et l'innovation donnent au BAL des éléments d'ADN communs évidents avec les entrepreneurs.
Arte Studio Lab has accompanied LE BAL and La Fabrique du Regard in the conception and the technical development of ERSILIA since its creation. Under Lumni, a pedagogical, cultural and scientific resources portal, LE BAL proposes an expanded access to ERSILIA designed for second cycle teachers and their students.
Since 2010, Le Cinéma des Cinéastes has hosted the « Cycle Cinéma » linked with the current exhibition at LE BAL, which enables the audience to discover a high-level selection of rare and experimental films in one of the only cinema to be equipped of a 35mm projector.
Le Cinéma des Cinéastes is also a partner of the program Mon Oeil ! of La Fabrique du Regard. Each year, projections are organized there with young people involved in the educational programmes.
Each year, l'École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales hosts the Fall seminar of LE BAL which aimed to explore the issues of contemporary images and to understand the idea of visual “document” in its whole diversity. This collaboration has prevailed since 2015 with the Rounds, organized in the heart of each exhibition at LE BAL. These Rounds use a radiophonic format in order to create a conversation between an artist and a social researcher. Theses dialogues are all about building a common thinking regarding the limits, the forms and the potential of an image based relationship to the world.
La Fémis is a partner of Mon Œil !. Each year, projections are organized there. Every year since 2017, the school hosted the restitution exhibition of works by the young students. Directors and former Fémis students regularly lead workshops of creation with the young students of La Fabrique du Regard.
