July 16: Cruise + Hip Hop Ball with JP MANO
For the July 16 cruise, we'll be making an exceptional stop in Pantin, at the Place de la Pointe instead of the Bassin de la Villette. Hip-hop and dance activities will take place in the square, accompanied by live music.
The Ourcq canal is a privileged place for Parisian artists where private and public commissions and wild graffiti flourish.
Artists worked on barges, factories, building facades, workshops or cultural sites, under bridges or on gable walls, thus transforming the Ourcq canal into a real open-air museum.
This cruise is proposed by the Manufacture 111 within the framework of the l'Été du Canal. The Manufacture 111 is a center of urban creations, which organizes exhibitions, projections, live performances and fooding.
