The ActionExpo "Infinite Creativity for a Finite World" aims to highlight the unique capacity of design to actively engage in the co-construction of a desirable future, to seek, reveal and enhance "common sense" through modest and sober practices whose resilience has been proven over time. In these difficult times, young designers feel more than ever the need to "give people a voice", to question their spontaneous methodologies of investigation and production, the plurality of their actions within a world whose finiteness we all now recognise.
More than just an exhibition, ExpoAction offers visitors the opportunity to plunge into the heart of a plurality of actions in progress carried out by a new generation of designers committed over the long term to the valorisation of collective creative impulses, to reveal the power of social bonds. It affirms the need for a "civic design" that allows the viewer "acting" to experience and measure the daily impact of their actions and above all to enjoy the benefits of their collective resonance.

From the setting up of classic media such as radio to the ad hoc creation of neighbourhood vocabularies or the production of multicultural hybrid objects often resulting from the reactivation of old forgotten practices: some twenty projects will thus be revealed in Folie n°6, Parc de la Villette, Paris.
We will discover models of humble, necessary, responsible, restorative and respectful actions of the fragility of the human and non-human, co-initiated by international designers and artists, who are just waiting to be explored, questioned, modulated, shared... ad infinitum!
