L’Aire à Mots, our community
At l’Aire à Mots, we believe that building bridges between communities is what makes for a coherent democracy. Whether written or spoken, we believe in the power of poets and poetry. Our mission is to make the French language available to all.
Regularly confronted with illiteracy, L’Aire à Mots works to include those whose childhoods did not allow schooling, or only very little. Our creative workshops address such issues for both youths and adults, working primarily with very low income and migrant audiences. Our volunteers intervene as admins, accountants, artists, educators, instructors… Make Art In Paris is regularly involved in its projects. Your contribution has a huge impact on our community: Make Art In Paris gives 79% of proceeds to l’Aire à Mots. Our contribution to sustaining this local organization ‘s engagement in education.
