D´Arts et de rêves

General information

Brief description of organisation

D’Arts et de rêves was founded by a writer, a sculptor and a circus artist who wanted to give artists of those disciplines the opportunity to create and research in a beautiful inspiring environment. They renovated a barn dated from the last century situated in a seven acre park. They surrounded themselves with professional people from the three disciplines to form a non-profit organization focused on its nature culture vocation.

D´Arts et de rêves 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.
