D'Arts et de rêves

D'Arts et de rêves is a non-profit organization created in 2015 which aims to promote creation in three artistic disciplines – visual arts, literature, and contemporary circus arts – and to facilitate the accessibility and appreciation of these arts by the public. This organization recognizes itself in the values of democratization of the arts, exploration and sharing of artistic experiences, and collective production.

By its nature-culture vocation, D'Arts et de rêves offers an experience combining appropriation of nature territory and artistic creation. To this end, it has established and operates a seven-acre cultural park open to all, where sculptures and areas for musing and creating will be set up, as will a place of creation and dissemination, that is a residence open to artists of the three targeted disciplines. The residency time will allow artists to explore, to experiment, to develop their projects and their art in a spirit of innovation, interdisciplinary sharing, as well as sharing with the arts community and the people of the region.
