Mazmat. Espace Midi wants to contribute to the cultural life of the city

Midi space is a new cultural venue in the city. A residence for artists, musicians, and software developers. These doors will open in April 2022.

Josephine Bode left Holland and fell in love with Mazamet!

They have re-equipped a large house to make guest rooms. I also fell in love with the very old building from the time of demarcation which is in the house next door which is now renovated. Josephine is a musician who plays the flute and specializes in creating and presenting innovative concerts and musical theater productions. She was joined by Maxime Solé, a circus artist with a passion for live performance, and Edward Maurer, musician and art director for more than 15 artist CDs: this is how “Espace Midi” was born, a residency for artists, musicians and software developers. A space that has not opened yet (it will be in April 2022) but the association wanted to discover it.

A multi-use cultural and artistic center

The former wool drying room, which over the years became a garage, then a dance school and sports hall, has been converted into a cultural and artistic center that aims to be versatile and adaptable to the different needs of its future users. On the ground floor we find the reception, changing rooms, a bar, a convivial space, a large multi-purpose room and a squash hall. Upstairs, a small apartment will allow the artists to stay. Next to the “cocoon”, a space for performances and rehearsals can accommodate small events. A continuation of “Le Dojo” is a large sports hall for dance, yoga and other forms of art and sports.

The large rooms will be rented out to the associations.

Josephine Bode tells us about her vision for Espace Midi: “My dream is to make it a very open space. My guest rooms are residence for artists who benefit from a preferential rate but are open to everything. The world. Midi is an open and accessible space. I want visitors to come and exchange ideas. Midi Space It is a development platform for and with artists and creators.”
