For several years now, SECONDE NATURE and ZINC, both now under the banner of CHRONIQUES, acting as digital imagination incubators, have fostered and promoted contemporary creation, advancing the understanding of the world in the digital age, and helping everyone appropriate technologies to develop their own creativity and emancipation.

To do so, CHRONIQUES run several cultural activities in line with the current programme. The activities are held all year round at MEDIALAB at La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille but also at our partner establishments when there are events on (the Biennale, exhibitions, concerts, etc.).
