Rencontres Audiovisuelles has specialised in video mapping (immersive, interactive, on objects or facades) through different activities:
picto_euranim_horizontal_noir Video Mapping Contest: international video mapping competition taking place each year in September during the European Heritage Days.
picto_euranim_horizontal_noir Creations: production of video mapping performances on buildings, objects, indoor, for events, on stages, etc.
picto_euranim_horizontal_noir Trainings: in order to support the evolution of this creative sector and facilitate the adaptation to new jobs, Rencontres Audiovisuelles offer trainings for young professionals, especially from the animation or VJing sectors.
picto_euranim_horizontal_noir Residencies for young video mapping artists, always followed by a public screening.
picto_euranim_horizontal_noir Workshops for animation students and professionals, or in collaboration with sociocultural organisations. Rencontres Audiovisuelles organises workshops for a group of people on how to use tools and how to write and create video mapping for a building in the city or on objects.

Locations that have been mapped through a residency, a workshop or a contest:
Lille’s Opera House, Théâtre du Nord, Rihour Square’s War Memorial, L’hybride in Lille, Roubaix’s train station, Dunkirk public baths, Dunkirk’s prison, FogasHáz (Budapest), etc.

Rencontres Audiovisuelles is the project’s lead partner and welcomed the first video mapping workshop in L’hybride, Lille, in September 2015. This workshop allowed the creation of a futuristic video mapping exhibition on everyday objects, “The Museum of the 23rd Century”.
Also, each year during Fête de l’anim’, Rencontres Audiovisuelles and its Euranim partners will organise creative challenges, masterclasses and job dating sessions to create links between students, professionals and the general public, as well as to build bridges between animation, video games and video mapping.
