Founded in 1877 near Père Lachaise cemetery, right after the Commune, La Bellevilloise is the first Parisian cooperative built to offer to the middle class an access to political education and culture. A place of resistance where the first commercial exchanges, from producer to consumer, a fair trade market and artistic shows took place. La Bellevilloise had a main role in the economical and cultural life of the eastern Paris from 1910 to 1949.
Since 2005, Renaud Barillet, Fabrice Martinez and Philippe Jupin, three agitators from the living arts production, media and production industry reopened this historical building with a strong project: give a second life to the spirit of La Bellevilloise creating a huge independent place with artistic activities and happenings for the public, companies and media which is unique in Paris.
