In 2018, the far° inaugurated Les Marchandises, a unique space ideally located in the city center of Nyon, to develop its activities. This space places far° at the heart of social change by allowing it to welcome and accompany creative and participative artistic projects throughout the year. It is not a question of replacing a theatre that has a seasonal programme, but of offering a response to the needs of new contemporary artistic practices. This place offers a research and residency space to artists from Switzerland and around the world. It promotes mediation and cultural participation with various audiences and also offers public openings linked to all activities developed. Finally, it helps to strengthen collaborations and create new partnerships with various institutions (universities, museums, associations, etc). Listening to a changing society, Les Marchandises intends to be at the interface between art, society and territory.
