    The Banlieue Project team heads to the southern French city of Montpellier and to the central Comédie square in the la Paillade neighbourhood, where residents have started organising modern-day citizen agoras. The events are a rare occasion for those who don’t often have the chance to express themselves to do so. They also help restart dialogue between residents of the inner city and its peripheral zones.
