La malterie’s partnerships included local institutions such as Lycée de Wingles, Collège St Thomas, University of Lille, BAGGIO BTS, the secondary school François Albert and Centre d’Art Plastiques et Visuels. However they also worked with the University of Tournai & Academy of Fine arts Tournai in Belgium. Young people were given a presentation on la malterie – its activities and its professional and political context – as well as a presentation of the work of contemporary artists linked to la malterie. They also participated in workshops and discussions where they received feedback on their work from artists and were able to develop skills in different art practices, such as photography and sculpture. Young people were able to experience the different areas of the organisation: the documentation centre, the studios and the exhibitions.
