Do you ever visit the Louvre, Versailles or the Pompidou without traveling? This will be possible soon thanks to the Micro-Folie that will open this summer at Le Pouliguen.

Pouliguen will open a digital museum where nearly everyone can visit the largest national cultural institutions. Inspired by the Folies of Parc de la Villette, the “Micro-Folie” museum will be a unique virtual art gallery combining visual arts, design, architecture, live performances and scientific content.
What is micro-foley?
“The core of Micro-Folie is the digital museum freely available. The place also provides access to scientific and historical content.” Patrick Gegen, Cultural and Art Life delegate, explains the multimedia in Poligwyn. The Micro-Folies is directly inspired by the Folies du Parc de la Villette, a group of 26 bright red buildings designed by architect Bernard Chaumi, where events open to the public are organized. Target? It allows everyone to create the largest national cultural institutions free of charge. Among them: the Pompidou Center, the Palace of Versailles, the Institute of the Arab World, the Louvre Museum, the Musée d’Orsay, the Quay Branly Museum by Jacques Chirac, as well as the National Opera of Paris, or even the Festival of Avignon. . “In all cases, the beneficiary integrates a wide network of places and partners who share a common goal of cultural democratization,” Refers to Patrick Guéguen. Already discussed during the last two municipalities, the creation of the Micro-Folie in Pouliguen will benefit from a budget of € 40,000, pending future membership in the Micro-Folies network.
Micro-Folie development in future media library
The Micro-Folie platform can be setup in an existing location, such as the Marcel Baudry room initially in Pouliguen, while awaiting installation in a future media library. The municipality is already planning to expand this project with other developments, such as a virtual reality space that can be created to explore 360-degree worlds. “We can find there educational devices with pictures, a point dedicated to virtual reality, a small stage for performances that welcome 40 to 50 spectators, and exhibition and discussion spaces that allow for the organization of cafes, philosophy, and literary or civic meetings.” Refers to Patrick Guéguen. Players and local associations will also be invited to animate Micro-Folie from an intergenerational perspective. “For example, there will be joint work to be undertaken with schools or even with the permanent university.”
