A new digital museum has opened in Marseille. In cooperation with the Ministry of Culture, various local bodies and the association “La Fabulerie”, the first “Micro-Folies” of the French Bouches-du-Rhône region has opened in Marseille.
A “Micro-Folie” is a digital museum, which can host a FabLab, a Virtual Reality (VR) room, a theatre, a library and an area where people can meet, chat, share a meal and co-create.
A Fab Lab, or digital fabrication laboratory, is a place for people to play, to create, to learn, to mentor, to invent. It is a place for learning and innovation. Fab Labs provide access to the environment, the skills, the materials and the advanced technology to allow anyone anywhere to make (almost) anything.
The main aim of Micro-Folie is to create a multi-purpose venue, co-created with its audience. In fact, every Micro-Folie is unique, as they answer the specific needs of local citizens.
Since May 2021, the Micro-Folie in Marseille has been welcoming young people and adults, who can play with several digital works of art and explore paintings and their history in every detail. Like the From Archive to Alive project, the Micro-Folies want to make digital archives accessible and popular among the youngsters.
The association “La Fabulerie” hosts the Micro-Folie in its museum, Le Fabuleux. To find out more about the frequently organised workshops, visit the website https://lafabulerie.com/.
