As an accelerator of cultural, social and solidarity projects, Pali Pali creates, manages and stimulates meeting and experimentation places, factories of an innovative and sustainable society. Incubators, third places, temporary occupations (See U, Grand Hospice, L'imprimerie).


pali pali creates the necessary spaces to accelerate cultural, social and solidarity projects. These spaces are multiplying throughout the world with success and are part of a well-defined methodology. These third places are pooling (of tools, skills, etc.) aimed at experimentation and the development of social and sustainable innovation.

A third place is a space where social and professional identities are not a priori determinant, where markers are blurred for a moment, suspended. This openness is counterbalanced by the need for everyone to recognise themselves in the "spirit of the place", if only partially (affinity of professional, technical, ideological interests, etc.). The third place is therefore also a project, a group or even a community, and adherence to the "spirit of the place" can become an essential criterion for acceptance by the group, which can go as far as co-option by the community. This is why the co-creation of spaces, including all the stakeholders in the project, is fundamental to our methodology.


pali pali manages the existing venues through its team and its technical and financial expertise. In order to coordinate the project in an optimal way and to guarantee an efficient co-construction process, it is for example essential to identify all the actors present and the nature of their involvement in the project in order to associate them as well as possible in a collective dynamic.

The management of a place can have several objectives: to create economic activity, to animate neighbourhood life, to perpetuate an activity, to give access to a space, to limit degradation, to test new uses, to prefigure the future of a neighbourhood, to diversify activities, etc. But above all, it is a way of making a place useful, of making the most of its potential. Our network of locations and partners offers a wide range of opportunities.

All these developments are possible thanks to an experienced team (project manager, communication manager, technical director), which has developed innovative reporting and evaluation tools for its activity.


Each new project requires new energies and new synergies in order to adapt perfectly to the constraints of a new mission. pali pali programmes and energises the premises. In this context, our team involves all the stakeholders on a daily basis, such as the owners, neighbours and surrounding associations, in order to create a real culture of proximity. All of this attention to co-construction revolves around the occupants as well as the users.

For example, See U's programming for the local public has taken many forms over the year: weekly organic market with the creators present on the site; collection of donations and hosting of the #feedTheCulture initiative; participative radio; repairs cafés; exhibition of local artists "Au coin de la rue"; distribution of gifts to neighbours; organisation of a "brocante des voisins"; "Quartier en Feest" meeting; Rollers Party...
