THE ASSOCIATION

Image

Le coeur battant de nos projets c'est le Centre Culturel 'Arioi,
une association à but non lucratif qui propose des activités en périscolaire aux enfants et aux adultes de la commune de Papara, où nous prônons une mixité sociale totale !

Le Centre Culturel s'engage pour que les générations de demain connaissent et comprennent leur identité polynésienne mais aussi pour qu'elle prenne conscience des grands enjeux de notre siècle que sont la mondialisation, l'environnement, l'alimentation, la santé et bien sûr la culture...

La culture,

c’est exprimer l’avenir,

en célébrant le passé

C’est la mission que nous nous sommes donnée : rendre la culture polynésienne accessible au plus grand nombre, enfants et adultes, locaux et touristes, néophytes et confirmés.


Grow your Soul from the Heart

Culture is expressing the future by celebrating the past.

This is the aim of our work: making Polynesian culture accessible to as many people as possible, children and adults,

the people of Polynesia as well as tourists, beginners to experts.

Join the ‘Arioi experience.

‘ARIOI


 

The ‘Arioi were praised in ancient times.

They were talented actors, dancers and storytellers. They were the masters of ceremonies and the holders of ancestral knowledges, they also had legendary sailing skills! We want to re-discover this heritage and make it available overseas, so our culture stays alive.

The symbol of the ‘Arioi was the red feather.
