Located at La Friche La Belle de Mai in Marseille since 1992, the AMI is a general interest structure for artists (musicians and polymaths), cultural entrepreneurs and residents of the metropolitan and regional area. The association offers a pathway to professionalization composed of several devices:

– transmission/ professionalization (workshops and masterclasses, incubator and entrepreneurial formations).
– creation/ distribution (co-productions, residencies, Hip-Hop Society)
– cooperation/networking (export and international residencies via European projects and international cooperation). 

These different tools aim to allow artists in our territory to develop their artistic careers in a sustainable way by linking them to their ecosystem (public and operators).  The AMI is therefore the place to welcome artists in the making or confirmed thanks to the work spaces offered by its 6 creation studios (including an ERP of 100 m2 with an equipped stage) but also a place to accompany and welcome the cultural entrepreneurs of tomorrow via its platform Dynamo (resource place, training, advice, coworking).
