It is a movement, a voluntary movement and a great social mobilization, “said Louise Sicuro, CEO of Culture pour Tous, about the event that will take place from 27 to 29 September. “It is the prescription that is proposed to all our employees, to do free activities so that there is no barrier, that people feel invited. Activities also where you can put your hand in the dough, where you can better understand the work of artists, see the bottom of the creation, the backstage activities, be where we can not be usually. “
