studios of creation (projects)
education, training & workshops

Initiated by the Center Pompidou and IRCAM, this artistic educational project Studios of Creation (Ateliers de la création) has a simple but demanding ambition: to offer students of vocational training schools, far from the world of art and its institutions, a dive at the heart of the most contemporary creation.
