Visiteurs du SITEM

Conferences and Workshops

The SITEM conferences bring together people from all over the world, and they are often based on rather original topics. As for the Workshops, they are a chance to get involved in some unparalleled case studies. These original, intellectual initiatives are constantly being renewed, and have become the main attractions of the SITEM.

Visitors to the SITEM

from French and international cultural institutions

people working in the cultural sector (architects, set designers, lighting specialists, etc.)

Start-Up Contest

This contest was created in 2017, and brings together 50 to 60 start-ups who have exhibited at the SITEM, in front of a distinguished jury from renowned institutions. This contest is an exceptional driving force for young budding entrepreneurs.

Musées (em)portables

The French Ministry of Culture describes this event as one of the “fifteen remarkable measures of tomorrow’s musuem”. For this festival, participants film three-minute videos with their mobile telephone, while visiting a museum. Some of them are hilarious, some tell a story, and participants are free to use their creative spirit as they wish.
