A writing and public reading performance workshop led by Sébastien Thiéry and an invited artist in the context of the inscription of acts of hospitality on UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage list.

The PEROU - Pôle d'Exploration des Ressources Urbaines - works to collect, write and share the formidable gestures of hospitality that are deployed in the four corners of our metropolises. Far from the reductive narrative that relegates refugees or exiles to a nomenclature and figures, PEROU takes note of the innumerable life paths that are theirs and of the hospitable and vital acts that are woven between them all. In order to make them known and no longer silent, the PEROU has launched a shipyard aiming to design and float by 2024 a sea rescue boat, a place of welcome and care, a manifest and witness place, a collective work which articulates the engineering specific to the shipyard and the multiple echoes that such a project questions and requires: legal formalizations, artistic translations, driving force of the idea itself and of its realization.
In this long process, PEROU stops by Lafayette Anticipations and proposes a writing workshop and public reading of the inauguration speech of this NAVIRE AVENIR. Starting from a framework co-written by Sébastien Thiéry, coordinator of PEROU's activities, and the author Marielle Macé, the participants will transform, amend, and write a speech, their common speech, which they will give to the public, with the complicity of a guest artist. No doubt that these shared words will project us into a future finally rich in our enthusiasm.
