It is led by Lieux publics, European and national centre for artistic creation in public space, located in Marseille (FR). 

This year IN SITU celebrates its 20th anniversary in the midst of its current (UN)COMMON SPACES project. 

In 20 years, IN SITU supported 300 artists working outside conventional venues, brought together 31 partners from 21 countries and 18 languages, conducted 7 projects co-funded by the European commission, caught a rising interest with 1 million audience / year.


Thank you to all IN SITU former and current collaborators throughout the years and happy 20th anniversary to the network! 

Lieux Publics and the IN SITU partners deeply thank the European Commission for the continuous support.
