Noticing how hard it is to avoid cramming one’s schedule with a bunch of activities that take up days, weeks and years, La Vaste Entreprise decided to create Fondation du Rien – the Foundation of Nothing.

The Foundation offers a wide array of activities to sign up for worry-free, because they are systematically cancelled. Its work therefore mainly involves creating and providing blocks of free time that appear out of the blue, during which you will suddenly find yourself with nothing to do, nothing planned, no obligations or commitments (or goals of any kind).

MAIF Social Club will host this presentation-performance (or will they?) that lies somewhere between a seminar and a TV shopping pitch, providing an overview of the Foundation’s work and its ambitions for growth.
