Featured Presentation

Grâce à nos smartphones, nous sommes connectés partout, tout le temps. Mais avons-nous accès aux histoires qui font vivre les lieux que nous fréquentons ? Comment se laisser inspirer par les archives, comment interagir avec les histoires qui nous touchent ? Comment partager des récits en mobilité ? Cette présentation se base sur l’application traverse pour apporter quelques réponses à ces questions..

Building friendships around a great meal

@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

«What are the similarities between you and me? » This question is behind the concept of Food N'Friends. The world is in need of quality and positive social interactions, greater cultural awareness, and appreciation of diversity to combat increasing isolation and loneliness.

Based on experiences in different countries and conversations with people from every background, Food N’ Friends event model was shaped and now serves as a social catalyst to enable new connections and friendships, and create a bridge between locals, expats and travelers.
The simple motto is « Let’s make friends around a delicious meal ».

Les merveilleuses machines de Jaques Besso

@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

Un ingénieur genevois du 16e siècle invente de merveilleuses machines et espère vendre son projet au roi de France. Il fait réaliser de magnifiques planches qui sont la base de cet accrochage. On y découvre d’étonnants systèmes pour tirer des bateaux de l’eau, transporter des voyageurs confortablement, dompter le vent et même … ratisser large.

Une jolie façon de mettre en lumière un étonnant best-seller de 1578 dont un exemplaire est conservé à la Bibliothèque du Musée d’histoire des sciences et de faire un lien avec son exposition « Roulez les mécaniques, la loi du moindre effort.

Art must be life, it must belong to everyone!

@ VOL 11 ON OCT 17, 2019

We are all fluent in the language of art. My work is how to reveal this in people and how to get them CLOSER to their own creativity. I believe that art must be life. It must belong to everyone!
