The curiosity of the other, and its fantastic whimsical ways.
The one that allows us to believe the unbelievable, to see the invisible, to find the lost.
The importance of cherishing the heritage of our ancestors and the knowledge of our elders.
The virtuous spirit of destitution and simplicity, a source of freedom and happiness, of creativity and ingenuity.

This force of undeniable strength, we wish to channel it, and place it in the hands of all the actors of the new ethical and sustainable economy.

Le Comptoir Général is a foundation : non-for profit, it serves a purpose of general interest.
Its income is entirely reinvested in the functioning of its activities: artistic and social content production and broadcast, on and off the premises, sale of edible goods, venue privatisation, and the encouragement to participative financing and sponsorship of its activities from individuals, businesses and institutions.
The boutiques of the Comptoir Général operate under a charity business model: the benefits that are gained are entirely reinvested into specific joint projects or associations.
