    The Cité des Arts de la Rue is a unique territory in Europe for experimentation and local and international development of the street arts, from creation to training, through a chain of skills, know-how and networks that are crucial for construction, distribution and cultural mediation.

    The Cité des arts de la rue is managed by the Association pour la Cité des Arts de la Rue (ApCAR), which coordinates the collective work spaces, mediation and communication of the project on the scale of the metropolitan territory.

    Perched on the plateau of the former L'Abeille oil and soap factories in the heart of the northern districts, the Cité des Arts de la Rue overlooks Marseille and claims to be a cultural territory on the outskirts of the city.

    Conceived as an immense scenic laboratory of 36 000 m2 with 11 000 m2 of buildings, 12500 m2 of streets, squares, quays and as much brushwood, gardens and river, where shows and performances are built and tested and then played in the public space

    It is organized around two national institutions:

    - Lieux publics (National Center of creation, pilot of the European network IN SITU)
    - The FAI-AR (Advanced and Itinerant Training for the Street Arts), the only course of study preparing for the profession of author-designer-director in public spaces

    The chain of skills is also based on a series of complementary and determining skills:

    The creation which constitutes the very identity of Générik Vapeur (Trafic d'acteurs et d'engins, compagnie internationale).
    Construction with Sud Side, the Ateliers Spectaculaires (Workshop for the creation of spectacular constructions [performance/creation/transmission] and associative motorcycle garage).
    The diffusion and the development with Karwan (Builder of Territorial Cultural Projects Street Arts & Circus Arts).
    The cultural mediation with Lézarap'art (Group of cultural action of proximity).
