"In May 2020, we founded "Tenir Parole"[“to keep one’s word”] : a new alliance of actors from health, science, arts and education whose common desire is to stimulate and drive a new imagination. To create a new space for dialogue and coordinate new actions to get through this unprecedented period in history together.
It is time to consider that this epidemic is also a factor in accelerating our choices and commitments.”
For the past 3 years, spaces for discussion and creation where science and art meet have been opened at the Théâtre de la Ville, in connection with scientists, doctors and associated students.
This 'Art and Science' program offers several formats: the Art and Science Meetings, the Scientific Consultations, the Health-Culture Academy, and numerous artistic actions in hospitals for caregivers and patients.
Since March 2020, associated scientists have been involved with the Theatre de la Ville :
Astrophysicist, Director of Research Emeritus at CNRS
Biologist and philosopher, director of research emeritus at the CNRS
Biologist, professor at Sorbonne University and the National Museum of Natural History
