The association

The Periscope and the RESEAU association (French for "Network") aims at
"Gathering Energies for the Protection of an Artistic Utopian Space"

The Periscope was born in 2007 under the initiative of two musical collectives (the Grolektif and Collective Polycarp), along with the Université Populaire of Lyon. In 2010, AGAPES becomes the fourth association to take part in the project, embodied by RESEAU.

The Periscope organizes about 130 concerts a year, as well as over twenty artists residencies.  Many other cultural events such as lectures, poetry cabarets, workshops also take place rue Delandine ...

Our project relies on a network of volunteers and musicians who give their time to music and culture. Its funding is a mix of own resources, grants and donations.
