The Maison des Pratiques Artistiques Amateurs comprises 5 large rehearsal rooms for theatre, music and dance and 1 broadcasting studio (shared with the Conservatory and La Place) big enough for very large orchestras and choirs for rehearsal and public performances. Of these 6 spaces, 3 have been set aside for music groups and choirs, and the remainder for theatre and dance. The Maison des Pratiques Artistiques Amateurs also provides instruments: percussion instruments, keyboards, drums, pianos, harps, double basses, digital pianos, amplifiers, etc. Overall, 80% of the timetable slots for the rooms is set aside for amateur association companies. The remaining 20% is used for artistic workshops organised by the MPAA and its partner institutions.
In addition to providing rehearsal space, the MPAA/La Canopée, given its location, promotes the implementation and development of amateur artistic projects, within the Paris area, by facilitating exchanges between Paris Centre and greater Paris.
