Culture and heritage are pillars for the construction and development of each community. Both an inheritance from former generations and a legacy to future ones, cultural heritage constitutes a common property resource which creates an essential link at the heart of societies.
The Michelin Corporate Foundation is very engaged in the life of territories where the Group is implanted, and supports cultural creation and contributes to the preservation of local heritage.

An interview with Jean-Charles Vergne, FRAC Auvergne Manager, January 16th, 2017
Created in 1997, the association called Il Faut Aller Voir (you have to go see) brings together people who are passionate about travel and very keen on discovering other horizons and other cultures in the spirit of independence, far from beaten paths of traditional tourism. It favours an approach focused on human beings, being open to the other and respect of cultural differences.
Insula orchestra, founded in 2012 by Laurence Equilbey, performs at major French and European venues. In 2017, the orchestra moved to La Seine Musicale on the Île Seguin in Boulogne-Billancourt.
Insula orchestra has a dual role in the Auditorium of La Seine Musicale: on the one hand, the orchestra is in residence at the Auditorium and, as such, plays its home productions; on the other hand, it invites various artists to perform at La Seine Musicale.
The Michelin Corporate Foundation puts its weight behind the European Heritage Days, a major architectural event not to be missed by lovers of culture and Europe.
With more than 30 years of experience to its credit, the orchestra now wants to infuse fresh energy into its activities.
The association “Sauve qui peut le Court Métrage” organises every year an international festival in Clermont-Ferrand. This event is recognised as the most important international platform for showcasing short films.
From its inception, the Michelin Corporate Foundation has been committed to promoting the sciences. To this end, it is contributing to the endowment of Universcience Partenaires which was founded to promote a culture of science, technology and environmental awareness among young people and the general public.
