The Wagon fresco was created for the hip-hop and urban culture festival as part of the Histoires d'art à Saint-Denis program, a cultural twinning between the Rmn - Grand Palais and the town of Saint-Denis, in collaboration with the Dionysiaques association.

The Dionysiaques revive the 1st Capitole dining car (France's 1st high-speed train) parked in front of the Lycée Paul Éluard in Saint-Denis. They are rehabilitating a heritage object, promoting culture and creativity in their neighborhood and creating links between people.

Workshops with leisure centers and local residents
At the same time as creating the wagon's exterior fresco, Seb Toussaint runs lettering and spray-painting initiation workshops. 72 participants contributed to the creation of the wagon's new ceiling.
Students from the Lycée Paul Eluard chose the word MIXITE to illustrate the fresco on the Wagon's ceiling. A word they felt represented the city of Saint-Denis and its many nationalities, but also the parity between men and women and the mixing of social classes in everyday activities.
