In 2016...

The first chapter of "The story of D'Arts et de rêves..." began something like this:

It happened once upon a time, or on June 18 2016 to be more precise, at 57, rue Principale Nord, Sutton. The weather was splendid, an exceptionally beautiful summer day, and there was excitement in the air and plenty of action as volunteers busied themselves throughout the D’Arts et de rêves property…

Then gradually, guests, friends, and curious bystanders arrived: volunteers at the main entrance welcomed everyone. People quickly took cover in the shade, under the big tent or trees, or hid under their hats or sunbrellas, waiting for the official start of the inauguration. Everyone smiled: it was going to be a perfect day!

In 2021...

In the summer of 2021, five years later, we will almost be able to repeat this introduction when writing another chapter in the history of D’Arts et de rêves.  We will at that time be able to describe the work that will have lasted more than a year and the celebrations that marked the end of the barn's transformation.

This is an ambitious project and we are looking forward to inaugurating the place and welcoming once again artists in residence.

To be continued...
