Meet the artists!

Being in residence are privileged moments for artists as they can focus entirely on their work, their research, in a place dedicated solely to creation…

What greatly enriches the residence experience is meeting with the artists of the region and the community and discovering the environment.

We organize these mediation meetings to generate enriching exchanges, as much for the artist who shares his work and creative process, as for the public who is invited to discover or get to know a little better an artist who came to Sutton to create.

These meetings are open to one and all!
