Micro-Folie, the Digital Museum
Micro-folie is a digital museum, with its 500 treasures from the largest national institutions. It is made up of 3 entities: the digital museum, the digital creation space and the fablab.
Inspired by the Folies du Parc de La Villette designed by the architect Bernard Tschumi, the innovative Micro-Folie project is led by the Ministry of Culture and coordinated by La Villette, with the Palace of Versailles, the Pompidou Center, the Louvre, the Musée national Picasso, Musée du Quai Branly, Philharmonie de Paris, RMN-Grand Palais, Universcience, Institut du Monde Arabe, Musée d'Orsay, Opéra national de Paris, Festival d'Avignon and d 'other national operators.
Micro-Folie is a project that intends to feed on the uniqueness of each territory where it is established, through close work with local actors in order to adapt content and activities to the characteristics of the territory.
Marveling, learning, surpassing oneself, having fun, creating and sharing, these are the experiences that Micro-Folie promises at SAINT-RAPHAEL today.
