Pending the deconstruction of certain existing buildings to allow the creation of the new "Berthelot-Zola" block, the City of Grenoble and SAGES, developer of the EcoQuartier Flaubert, have decided to open the doors of this site to the general public by making it available for an innovative transitional occupancy project for a period of 4 years (from early 2023 to late 2026). Located to the north of the EcoQuartier Flaubert, between the city center and Grenoble's Villeneuve district, close to the MC2 and the Bifurk, the project concerns the buildings formerly occupied by the Institut National Supérieur de Professorat et de l'Education (INSPÉ ex IUFM).
To coordinate this project, the City of Grenoble and SAGES have launched a public tender to appoint a site coordinator responsible for a triple mission of coordination, stimulation and animation. The main content of this mission consists of :
- Coordinate and support future occupation of the site, ensuring overall coherence;
- Offer a variety of one-off projects and activities throughout the year in the buildings and outdoor spaces, while respecting the history of the neighborhood and the environment.
pali pali will be operating its first temporary occupancy project in France, in Grenoble. The program includes a third-location facility bringing together several complementary activities in the same space: production spaces, cultural and social activities, sustainable food, etc. The occupants will be selected through a call for expressions of interest currently underway. They will be announced in early 2023.
The aim of the project is to create a new convivial space in the neighborhood, thanks to its social and inclusive programming. This occupation will test and prefigure the uses of the future neighborhood, and feed into the definition of the final project. The site will be open to the public, and neighbors and local players will be involved to reveal the neighborhood's intensity and identity.
