Cultural action is one of the missions of the Public Information Library, which has been part of the Center Pompidou since its foundation. It must contribute to the cultural activity of the Centre.
A cultural action charter presents its objectives and methods.
- Cultural action has been enriched in recent years by various forms of mediation actions (workshops, hotlines, etc.) covering new fields.
- Media and information literacy is the subject of a specific section.
- In addition, documentary cinema is one of the establishment’s areas of excellence with the Cinema Department, the Documentary Cinematheque and the Cinéma du réel festival.
In this section, you will find methodological tools (preparing oral events, an exhibition, a concert, mediation, an exceptional event – for example a reading marathon, a literary festival –, etc.).
Here you will find exhibitions designed by the Bpi.
Most of the events are recorded and can be consulted live and a posteriori on the Bpi website.
A selection of debates on book trades, the dissemination of information and networks, culture, will also be offered, as well as some feedback.
