LES GRANDS VOISINS 

Les Grands Voisins is an ongoing pop-up project - a collaboration between NGO's, Artists, Startups and Paris City Council to take over a vacant space in the city and transform it into a mixed use space for refugee and homeless resettlement, community gatherings, and a platform for re-integration. It includes a café/restaurant, performance spaces, market days, camping spaces and multicultural events. It has been a huge success and thriving tourist destination.
