Venue > Banquet

September 3rd, 2019

The conference banquet will take place on the evening of Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019, in Les Subsistances ("The Subsistences" in English), a place currently dedicated to artistic creation, located on the banks of the Saône river, at the bottom of Croix-Rousse hill.

Since the 17th century, The Subsistences have had 3 major assignments. By simply looking at the site, we can see the different occupations that have followed one another.
The parts of the site architecture that are in pink ocher are those that date from the occupation of the nuns, the Sisters of the Visitation. The Subsistences were then a convent.
The parts in yellow ocher are those that were built later by the military, when The Subsistences were a site of the army. During the French revolution, the buildings were taken from the nuns and used by the army instead. The place was then dedicated to food storage and processing, hence its name!
The army has left the place in 1991, and since 2000, The Subsistences are a laboratory dedicated to the artistic creation: it is a place of residence which welcomes artists all year long. They work on live performance: theater, dance and contemporary circus.
