MARIGOT: For nearly two years now, the Cobraced Association has been deploying Ideas Boxes on Saint Martin, media libraries in kit form designed by Bibliothèques Sans Frontières and designer Philip Starck. The Ideas Boxes host educational and fun activities, digital and creative workshops and offer a selection of books and multilingual digital resources.
From reading workshops at the EPHAD Bethany Home to digital comics during the summer vacations, from initiation to French at the Manteau de Saint Martin to musical workshops within their walls, Cobraced offered activities to nearly 1500 visitors from Quartier d’Orléans, Sandy Ground, Grand Case, Colombiers, Concordia, Marigot, etc.
Bibliothèques Sans Frontières will continue to assist Cobraced until October in the territory, then remotely from Metropolitan France.
For the sustainability of the project, Cobraced is supported by the Collectivité de Saint Martin, the Prefecture and the FDVA.
