    The Luminy Cultural Centre

    The Luminy Cultural Centre is a student association whose objective is to animate and develop activities around notions such as culture, citizenship, freedom of expression, art, knowledge sharing and social initiative. For more than 12 years, the volunteers of the association have been working hard to organize free and cultural events in the open air, to set up weekly or bi-monthly workshops, and to organize one-off events to create a social bond on campus. We are open to all to set up projects, to concretize ideas and to make the social heart of this campus beat, whose potential is infinite. L'Indien has been watching over the Luminyens for decades and encourages us, students, researchers, professors, administrators and other campus employees to participate in this common effort to build the Luminy of tomorrow. - 06 07 19 12 95
