Following on from the actions run in Fontaines-sur-Saône in 2021 – outside residential blocks and in parks and squares, plus an exhibition curated by municipal staff – a further experience will be co-constructed in the town this year.

The staff, who are now seasoned handlers of the Veduta toolbox – artistic and cultural outreach, encounters with artworks, career discoveries –, will give the town’s users a taste for curatorship. Along the way, the project will also extend into the Nouveau Centre and Marronniers districts, recruting a group of residents who will take turns to devise and design the exhibition. The latter will generate a trail between the riverbanks, the town centre and the plateau, thus following the features of Fontaines’ geography to equally connect sites and people.
