Amiens Cathedral : its history is also yours

As part of the show “How to build a cathedral” from Mark Greene at the MCA from 13 to 15 October 2020, the director Nathalie Grauwin has organised a testimonials conference of about 40 minutes long entitled “Amiens Cathedral: its history is also yours”.

The participants will be locals from Amiens who wish to contribute their own testimony about their relationship with the Cathedral.

This conference will be the culmination of workshops led by Nathalie Grauwin with the cooperation of MCA and La Comédie de Picardie.

“Amiens Cathedral: its history is also yours” will be presented before the start of the show “How to build a cathedral” at the MCA from 13 to 15 October 2020.  This conference will be in two parts:

- The first will be dedicated to the construction of Amiens Cathedral. The conference text will be written and read by Pascal Montaubin, a history graduate and a lecturer in medieval history at the University of Picardie Jules Verne. P. Montaubin has also written many articles and publications about the Amiens Cathedral. Some participants will also be able to take to the stand if they wish to.

- During the second part, the floor will be given to locals from Amiens who will have taken part in the workshops. They will share their own experiences about their relationship with the Cathedral, of its place in their daily lives. Amateur actors will also invite the general public to share their own thoughts and experiences.
