About IMAJ

Our organization “IMAJ’” was born from a desire of the local council in Auch to create a structure to facilitate exchange, youth expression and to foster youth initiatives. IMAJ’ welcomes all types of audience: according to their needs, the association develops animation projects and prevention for young people as a priority, but also for the entire population of the territory. To do so, the association IMAJ’ has three tools:

1. Info Jeunes Auch

A friendly, anonymous and accessible place, where everyone can find a multitude of different information (local job offers, resources, contacts). IJ Auch is a member of the Eurodesk network. The team also offer support in setting up individual or collective projects (methodology, funding, partners). It is a place where the visitors can have access to modern digital technology, and offers to make new technologies (tools and uses) accessible to as many people as possible. The animators supervise workshops and multimedia projects.

2. An Europe Direct Centre Auch Gascogne Occitanie

As part of an Europe Direct network (420 centers across the EU), this is a local resource center for information on the European Union. We are regularly called upon to supervise or monitor initiatives with a European dimension. This is notably the case via the European Erasmus+ Program. IMAJ’ have always been a sending structure of European Voluntary Service and now the European Solidarity Corps.

3. A concert hall (CRI’ART)

More than just concerts programmes, Cri’Art offers rehearsal spaces, workshops (sound, light, electronic music), recordings, and a Music Info Point as well as artistic accompaniment.
