Still visible, ruelle Billard, Besançon (FR)
Five European events and cities (Besançon, Cologne, Zaragoza, Toulouse and Zagreb) collaborated for this event during which the selected artists transformed abandoned site into living spaces. In Besançon, the Billard lane in the Battant district has been unused until now because it is considered dirty and dangerous. After six days of intensive work, it has now become a pleasant passage in the neighborhood. Thanks to the City of Besançon for having cleaned and prepared the place, to the Advisory Council of the Inhabitants of Battant and to the neighboring owners including Grand Besançon Habitat!
