When vocation meets motivation
The musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac is committed to building a cultural complex accessible to all by transforming its spaces and providing a wide variety of activities and innovative partnerships.
The Orange Foundation’s ambition it to give everyone the opportunity to communicate better by making culture accessible. This collaboration resulted in the production of the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Sensory Picture-Book in 2010, and continued in 2012 with support for the iPad application Quai Branly Experts.
THE ORANGE FOUNDATION WORKS TO MAKE THE WORLD MORE ACCESSIBLE
Since its creation in 1987, the Orange Foundation has been running a major patronage programme that builds on the company’s mission: to allow everyone to communicate better. By fighting against sensory deprivation, promoting greater autonomy in daily life and work, and encouraging cultural and social development, the Orange Foundation is working to make the world more accessible and create a social bond.
The Orange Foundation supports projects aimed at improving the quality of life for the visually impaired and the blind by facilitating their access to information, education and culture, and by giving priority to reading and to cultural sites.
In 2019-2020, it chose to support the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac in its large-scale project to restore African musical instruments and in its exceptional concert held to allow people to hear and discover some of these instruments.
The Orange Foundation also supports the educational and cultural actions of museums, notably targeting audiences with limited access to culture for socio-economic, geographic or health reasons. To this end, it supported the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac’s “Nomad Workshops” in 2020, which will form an ongoing project within this partnership through the organisation of exceptional events in Argenteuil (workshops, talks, presentations of works, etc.).
