Throughout the year, the FMTM develops its work in the direction of young children (0-3 years old). It organizes artists’ residencies in day care centers as well as artistic awakening workshops. 

The professional day of 09/14

This is a day of reflection on live performance for young children, a free meeting time open to all: parents, teachers, early childhood professionals, artists, etc.
This day is an opportunity to compare points of view and to ask how cultural structures and places for young children can create the best conditions for an encounter between children, professionals and artists.
