Welcoming hundreds of refugees, artists and volunteers to work together over five weeks, it was a space to bring people together and give them a chance to express themselves and be creative in a safe and welcoming environment.
11 meters in diameter, the big dome was filled with art, music and performance, giving a home to cultures and traditions from Yemen to Ethiopia, Syria to Somalia, Afghanistan to Sudan.
We believe that art has a huge role to play together bringing together people from different cultures and with different perspectives and experiences. As the world changes and people move, the responsibility of artists grows.
A programme of work was run based on week-long residencies from companies across Europe, culminating in Hope Shows at the end of the week, like in Calais.
Chantiers d'Europe festival at Théâtre de la Ville
For the month of May 2017, Good Chance was delighted to build and run a 'Petit dome', part of the Chantiers d'Europe festival at Théâtre de la Ville on the Champs-Élysées. The 'Little Dome' was an interactive exhibition, discussion and performance space, promoting the importance of freedom of expression and reinvigorating the dialogue around the changing face of Europe today.
