Cultural events

The development of cultural action in all its forms is one of the missions of the Bpi.  To best respond to this mission, the Library offers a variety of cultural events, relating to the problems of the world today: temporary exhibitions, cinema, debates, meetings, symposia, masterclasses, performances and readings.

The Library is also developing on-site mediations to reinforce relationships among its visitors, the librarians and the resources offered. Inside the Library, you can participate in tours, workshops, and special services or discover the wealth of the collections through selected thematic documents.
