Can you remind us what the Micro-Madness device consists of?

The Micro-Folie project is a device that revolves around a digital museum, in collaboration with twelve national cultural establishments, such as the Louvre, the Center Pompidou, La Villette… This cultural platform is also composed of a Fab Lab, a virtual reality space and a toy library. The objective is to create a space with multiple activities, accessible and warm and above all intergenerational. It’s a way to revitalize our digital public spaces, because digital is constantly evolving, it’s a way to bring something new at the cultural level and above all to play the card of proximity. It is a project within the proximity pole, a springboard for the digital public space. The idea is to bring new relevant actions closer to the inhabitants. That the less young can go to Micro-Madness is to encourage them to go to museums.

Is it a traveling virtual museum concept?

Yes, it is currently installed in Dozulé. We chose Dozulé because it is central in relation to the rural communes, to the schools managed by NCPA. But, there will be a turnover to reach elected officials, families, all generations combined. The device will then go to the municipalities. Some have already contacted us, such as Escoville, Victot-Pontfol, Hérouvillette, Merville-Franceville… They have taken the steps to plan the calendar for 2023, there is already a craze for this local culture.

Why did you organize this festival on Friday and Saturday in Dozulé?

The event this weekend will serve to show the possibilities of Micro-Madness, with the artists present on the site, and how the municipalities can take over this “museum that invites itself to our home” as I called. Everything is open to the public, free of charge. There will be digital advisors, the team of Eric Gaté, digital manager at NCPA, it will be a very strong moment. It will start this Friday afternoon. La Micro-Folie is installed in Dozulé until January 31, 2023, then it will move to the municipalities that have requested it.

Will the proposals of Micro-Folie adapt to the needs and wishes of the municipalities?

Normandy Cabourg Pays d’Auge has signed a cultural contract with the department and the goal is to have festivities, innovative micro-festivals, a way to mobilize and energize associations, festival committees so that they can add part of digital in their animations, tools to which they do not necessarily have access to usual. There will also be activities with schools and leisure centres. And the broadcast of the opera La Traviatta on December 16, in all the Micro-Folies in France, simultaneously.

What is the cost of this device for Normandie Cabourg Pays d’Auge?

The cost for NCPA is €55,000 for the acquisition of the equipment, knowing that La Villette lends us elements for six months, until April 2023, then we will have the equipment acquired. We have submitted financial aid files.

Will there be a renewal of the elements offered within this virtual museum and the modules that make up the Micro-Madness?

With the Micro-Folie, we have about 250 modules, La Villette enriches this collection every year with several modules, so as to have a continuous renewal. The renewal could also be linked to the themes developed with the municipalities: gastronomy, tourism, music, etc. It’s a long-term partnership.

Micro-Festival of Micro-Madness, Friday December 2 from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday December 3 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Fernand Seigneurie cultural space in Dozulé. Free access.
