La Gaîté Lyrique’s development policy is above all focused on creating local, national and international networks. By creating links with artist teams as much as with cultural institutions, start-ups, big companies, research labs, universities or educational and social organizations, la Gaîté Lyrique has consolidated an ecosystem which encourages innovation and a hybridization of disciplines, in the service of creation.

Cultural partnerships

Anchored in the heart of Paris in a neighborhood with a dynamic cultural offer, between the Sentier and the Marais, la Gaîté Lyrique has been dialoguing for a while with its immediate neighbors such as the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers and its museum, le Carreau du Temple and the entire Marais Culture+ network.

Network head at the crossroads between art, technology and society, la Gaîté is in collusion with other establishments in the Greater Paris and boosts projects on a national and international scale: Biennale Némo, Centquatre-Paris, CRI (Centre de recherches interdisciplinaires), le Lieu Unique and Stéréolux in Nantes, Electoni[k] in Rennes, le Fresnoy in Tourcoing, Zinc in Marseille, AADN in Lyon, HMKV in Dortmund, Cinekid in the Netherlands, Kikk Festival in Belgium and WoeLab in Togo.

La Gaîté Lyrique’s international action relies on the networks of the Alliance Française (Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Colombia), the Instituts Français (Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Digital Choc festival in Tokyo), the British Council and the Goethe Institute. It also develops a privileged collaboration axis between Paris and Montréal with the Société des Arts Technologiques.

La Gaîté Lyrique’s audience policy is developed through a strong-willed approach to setting up partnerships with local structures.

Through an active presence in the Paris and Ile-de-France areas, the audience relations team creates multiple links with different partners: educational institutions, higher education institutions, universities, non-profits, leisure centers, hospitals, social centers, social care institutions, remand centers, cultural venues… La Gaîté Lyrique develops digital culture education projects thanks to the support and the commitment of its institutional partners: City of Paris, Paris, Créteil and Versailles school boards, Drac Île-de-France, 93 Departmental council, Ile-de-France region, Canopé, CLEMI, PREAC Im@ges & Création.
