LieU’topie is a cultural and solidarity-based student association with strong local roots, but it is also a third place in the form of a grocery shop, a café, a bar, an exhibition room and a broadcasting venue. Open during the week and occasionally at weekends, the association offers a rich cultural programme of debates, concerts, exhibitions, meetings, games evenings, etc. The LieU also provides a fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine during the day.

Its actions invite students and citizens of Clermont-Ferrand to experiment with new practices in a convivial and inclusive way, notably thanks to its Femmes de Mars collective, which fights against all types of discrimination and raises issues around feminism and LGBTQIA+, according to a dynamic oriented by the values of social and solidarity economy, ecology and popular education.
