The open and creative venue of the Friche la Belle de Mai in the centre of Marseille offers an optimal (spatial and social) framework for a “festival” of networking, dialogue and inspiration.

La Friche was built from the old abandoned Seita tobacco factory and today it is a place of creativity and innovation. La Friche la Belle de Mai is both a workspace for local organisations and an event space for various formats and audiences.

You can find every form of artistic expression here – every trend and people of all ages. Learn more…

The 2018 NECE Conference will use these creative, interactive spaces in order to discuss the current pressing issues in Europe with participants from Europe and North Africa as well as the Marseille audience and local civil society organisations. A wide range of formats and methods will offer a variety of creative spaces for the development of tangible ideas, suggestions and recommendations for political educational practice.

In an European project market, civil society initiatives and NECE focus groups will present their work and invite people to talk and network; field trips to organisations working in the fields of citizenship and cultural education will foster a hands-on experience of the challenges that heterogeneous societies are currently facing.
