THE VENUE

Maison de la Mutualité

image maison de la mutualité

Inaugurated in 1931 by the French President Paul Doumer, the Maison de la Mutualité was one of the emblematic centres of the capital’s social and cultural life. The building is a magnificent example of Art Deco architecture and was fully renovated in 2011 by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who restored the place to its former glory while adding sober, modern touches to the interior design. Today, the Maison de la Mutualité has once again become a major venue for events on the Left Bank.
