Au bout du plongeoir

Frédérique Mingant

France

Au bout du plongeoir is an association driven by its founding members: fifteen administrators, more than two hundred members and many partners.

Together, they have created a space for experimentation and research in the fields of art, but also in other domains as the humanities and architecture. Au bout du plongeoir is a meeting place between artists and researchers. These experiments are made by the members in collaboration with the inhabitants of the cities where they gather.

The goal is to open doors to different “audiences” of different social and professional backgrounds (visitors, neighbours, “spectators”, etc.) at the same time so that they discover these experiences, and even on certain occasions participate.

Au bout du plongeoir established itself at the Domaine de Tizé, a magnificent site on the banks of the Vilaine.
