Le Campement Scientifique
 (Art & Science)

Le Campement scientifique: an event combining Art & Science in close collaboration with the artists of Les Ateliers du Spectacle / Groupe n+1

Through multiple events (shows, films, conferences, etc.), Le Campement scientifique deals with the principles of scientific research, and explains its mechanisms. A heteroclite program is built around this cross between Art and Science with, for example, Les Impromptus (a theatrical form featuring a researcher, accompanied by an artist, who talks about his work in a playful way, in an incongruous place).

It is also a group that brings together under the same entity artists, cultural structures, scientists, CCSTI (Centres de médiation de Culture Scientifique Technique et Industrielle) and local institutions (Musée de l’aventure industrielle, le Parc Naturel Régional du Luberon, Camera Lucida, MJC d’Apt, Service culturel de la Ville, Communauté de Communes du Pays d’Apt-Luberon).

From 2010 to 2014, the company Les Ateliers du Spectacle / Groupe n+1 was in companionship with Vélo Théâtre. This long term residency is at the origin of Le Campement scientifique, an event that allowed to continue and to evolve in another way the relationship with the Groupe n+1, associating it fully with the actions of Vélo Théâtre.

The next Campement scientifique will take place from 10th to 13th October 2019. Making it happen begins in 2018 with the reception of artists in residency and with cultural actions.
