Antoine TANGAMEN Cultural Centre, aka ZWAZO

Museum in Basse-Pointe
  • The Antoine TANGAMEN Cultural Centre, known as "ZWAZO", is located in the commune of Basse-Pointe, between Mount Pelée and the Atlantic coast, in the grounds of an old sugar plantation dating from the 18th century. Since 2015, this cultural centre has been the property of the Territorial Collectivity of Martinique.

  • This former home is a space dedicated to Culture and Arts, open to all publics and more particularly to the young schoolchildren of the North Atlantic, through the implementation of targeted actions.

    The buildings on the site, apart from its administrative areas, offer the public various reception areas, its green spaces, its room "la GRANGE", two other small rooms, which are used as exhibition rooms.

    The site is still home to the various communities that have successively settled there...
    This former home is a space dedicated to Culture and Arts, open to all publics and more particularly to the young schoolchildren of the North Atlantic, through the implementation of targeted actions.

    The buildings on the site, apart from its administrative areas, offer the public various reception areas, its green spaces, its room "la GRANGE", two other small rooms, which are used as exhibition rooms.

    The site is still home to the various communities that have successively settled there over the course of the history of this Martinique land. There is also an Indian Temple, one of the first in Martinique. For the populations of the Great North Atlantic, it constitutes a memorial space with its past as a bastion of emancipation. It was indeed one of the scenes of the great trade union struggles that marked the sugar industry and the banana industry.

    These venues host one-off events, cultural events: theatrical performances, concerts, exhibitions, workshops, as well as recurring events such as solidarity meetings, cinema nights, the Saturday Glorya board game day, the soup festival, the short film day with the National Education and CANOPEE associations, the October days devoted to the Kreyol language, and the seniors' meeting.
