Proxima Centauri is also an association, created to organise all the activities of the ensemble and to promote the contemporary music with different actions.
Since 2004, it organises the « Musical Season of Proxima Centauri » and produces exchanges with several guest ensembles for the OPUS, regular rendez-vous in Bordeaux’s concerts hall. Theses events are the occasion to invite different artists from Europe and permit to the audience to discover ensembles like Vortex, Espai Sonor, L’Itinéraire, Musicatreize…
The association organises also international tours and « La Soirée des Musiciens » during the festival « FAB » in Bordeaux every two years.
The association organises educational actions (workshops, master-classes, meeting with the artists…) with the school public, in collaboration with « Rectorat de l’Académie de Bordeaux » and the students of the « Pôle d’Enseignement Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Bordeaux Aquitaine ».
