Client : Association Aurore
"With Aurore, we determined the people’s needs. The recipients are people who live in extremely unstable conditions. As we met them, we felt their need to reconnect with society and a need for security. They told us all they wanted was their own space, a locker where they can leave their belongings."
Guillaume Hannoun, architecte

"Aurore is an association (...) It works in agreement with the public authorities in order to accommodate, nurse and integrate people left out of society."
Jérôme Flot, Directeur du patrimoine Association Aurore

"Our priority is to accommodate both families and single people. Women with young children, couples, single men and women will be gathered in this venue..."
Florence Fanelli, Directrice du site "La promesse de l’aube"

Films Paris Solidaire

"The Solidarity of Paris
Temporary locations to respond to the urgency of the situation
Locations embodying constructive, social, human challenges 
Locations that explain a way of sharing the city, a way of meeting together, a collective story.

For each location, a film.

Films in movement
To roam about these spaces that strive to show their welcome and their generosity
To show the mobilization of those who have built and breathed life into these venues
To express this new momentum.
