La Canopée

16700 Ruffec

La Canopée opened its doors in September 2006. The cultural centre comprises a library of 900 m2, a 450-seat concert hall and a multi-purpose conference hall. The project, « Scenes of written and performing arts » (as defined by the Charter and the various agreements with institutional partners DRAC, Région and Conseil général), is presented within a municipal framework. La Canopée has fast become a centre embracing both high art and popular culture alike.
