Welcoming people who are far from culture

In order to promote access to culture for people who are particularly far from it, the Centre Pompidou-Metz has a proactive policy of creating ideal conditions for meeting and sharing works of art as well as the activities on offer: adapted mediation, specific pricing, personalised support for professionals and volunteers who work in the social sector.

Relay of partner structures

Are you an employee or volunteer in a social structure? Take advantage of the free discovery visits and training courses to help you prepare a future visit to the Centre Pompidou-Metz with your group.

The art of sharing

This is a two-part training programme to prepare your group visit.

Discovery visit The aim of these visits is to familiarise you with the Centre Pompidou-Metz and its exhibitions, to discover the various activities on offer (live performances and workshops for young people), and to get to know the team dedicated to relations with the social field (mediators and public centre) in preparation for your visit projects.

**Cycle of meetings and visits

This cycle will enable you to conduct a visit independently with your group. It is based on several meetings:

  • With the exhibition curators, in the company of the mediators

  • With the programming teams, to present current and future exhibitions.

  • With our mediators, with the aim of better handling the groups (visits to the exhibition spaces, reflection on the visit and the most suitable activities, in-depth study of a particular theme, etc.)

  • With partner establishments in relation to the different types of disability.
