Le Comptoir Général is an art museum dedicated to ghetto culture: the result of creativity that springs up in poor or marginalised places all over the world. And especially in Africa. Its mission is to protect, produce and broadcast them, through movie production and screening, exhibitions, conferences, themed attractions, a record label and a radio, shops (record shop, second hand store, library, toy shop), events, workshops, shootings… All the benefits are reinvested into financing more artistic sustainable projects. The legal status of Le Comptoir Général will soon be based on the foundation model.
Le Comptoir Général is available for hire from Monday to Thursday by businesses, charities, NGOs and other organisations working on environmental issues, solidarity, social innovation and cultural diversity..
