QUAI DES ETUDIANTS : Joy, discoveries and meetings to respond to the social isolation of students


Aix-Marseille Université, the Théâtre de la Criée and the Centre Psychanalytique de Consultations et Traitement de Marseille-Aubagne have joined forces to respond to the reality of social isolation of students affected by the health crisis and its constraints with "Le Quai des Étudiants".

On the agenda, three weeks of joy, discoveries and encounters to reconnect with the imagination, art and sharing but also to contribute to the training and professionalization of students with :

  • A week of discovery of La Criée - from Tuesday 13 to Friday 16 April 2021

Six student highlights combining visits, practical workshops and technical manipulation on stage.

  • A Week of Professions at La Criée - from Monday 19 to Friday 23 April 2021

Ten half-days of professional training to discover the different professions of the performing arts through theoretical and practical sessions. In particular, the Magic of the Stage, a show-workshop, which allows a rich discovery of the technical professions, of the vocabulary and which proposes to the participants to carry out technical manipulations.

  • Discussion groups from Monday 19 to Friday 23 April 2021

Every day from 4:30 to 5:30 pm, discussion groups will also be offered to students who wish to share their difficulties in a group setting, with qualified therapists from the Marseille-Aubagne Psychoanalytical Consultation and Treatment Centre, under the responsibility of Professor Hervé Castanet.

  • A Mediation Week - Monday 26 to Friday 30 April 2021
