“Night of Ideas – Night, draw!

In Chandigarh, we will take advantage of the presence of two French illustrative authors, Mathieu Bertrand and Zeina Abirached, to carry out an all-sketch Night of Ideas that we have freely renamed “Nuit des Idées, Nuit, dessinez!”

The “draw” imperative is just an invitation to the Chandigarh public to participate in thematic collective illustrations inspired by our two guests and related to the 2023 theme “PLUS”.

The garden of the Alliance Française will become, for one evening, the place of several collective illustrations. We hope that the Night of Ideas will be more participative, less formal, so that between the strokes of the pencil, the debate will be created and ideas will emerge.

In order to collect the most diverse opinions and reactions, we have sent reaction boxes to the students of the Alliance Française de Chandigarh, before the Night of Ideas.
These “reactions” will serve as a basis for the illustrations that will be produced during the evening.

Two different themes will be collectively illustrated:

1/ More production and consumption? Theme of Mathieu Bertrand

2/ More control and security? Theme of Zeina Abirached

Throughout the evening, the audience will participate in making illustrations with our guests. We plan to film the event and project it live on a big screen and on social networks.

The Alliance Française will provide the public with a variety of material for free expression guided by our guests through the themes and reactions collected beforehand.

With the participation of two French authors.
