Bouillaque* is an event dedicated to word of mouth exchanges, shared living stories, contagious information and things that are not what they seem.

Rumor has a bad reputation. The rumor-mill, which is made of collective speech acts apparently authorless and seemingly uncapturable, document the dissonances of a collective unconscious. Yet, the oldest media in the world (it is said so) is also a mode of communiction, that, aside with flyers, graffitis and subjective stories enable the sharing of unofficial information.

The audience is invited to a collective conversation around a dinner, accompanied by Stephen Wright, rumorologist and founder of Observatoire de la Rumeur in Marseille.

*In the tongue of Languedoc (South of France) a bouillaque means a rumormongers or a gossip.
