Many associations are working on our territory to make culture accessible to all.
Exhibitions, workshops, entertainment, shows, film screenings... events are organized throughout the year on our territory, mobilizing many volunteers.
Here are some of the structures that welcome you all year round.
Scène conventionnée d'intérêt national Art en Territoire.
The Théâtre du Cloître is located in Bellac, in the heart of Haut Limousin.
Managed by the Bellac sur Scène association, it was inaugurated in 2002 and became a convention stage in 2005, but its history is older since it is linked to that of the Bellac National Festival, which celebrates its 66th anniversary in 2019.
Since 2018, Le Théâtre du Cloître has been awarded the label of a stage of national interest Art en territoire.
While the multidisciplinary nature of the season's programming remains central, drama is one of the major areas of programming with a determined support for contemporary theatrical writing and a particular attachment to animated forms (puppets and object theatre).
A highlight of the season organised each year, the Bellac National Festival is organised around theatre in all its forms: fairground theatre, street theatre, object theatre... but also musical and circus expressions.
Since its creation, the Théâtre du Cloître has welcomed artists in residence in Bellac. It has a residential house located near the theatre, making it possible to offer flexible and adaptable reception conditions to the artistic teams hosted in residence.
