A CULTURAL SITE OF REFERENCE / MULTIDISCIPLINARY, LIVELY AND CREATIVE
Cultural activity at Fontevraud does not stop with preserving the Abbey’s heritage, however exceptional it is. Fontevraud Royal Abbey has a dynamic multidisciplinary cultural programme as good as that found at the highly renowned cultural venues in Nantes, Angers or Tours, to name a few local cities, or even Paris! Installations by contemporary artists, exhibitions at the graphic arts gallery, debates and lectures on a range of themes – from history to design, film screenings and of course concerts; the Abbey lives and breathes culture. Not to mention the artists in residence programme and the work they create…
QUALITY IS THE WATCHWORD / FOR EVERYONE!
High-quality is of course key to programming ‘Made in Fontevraud’, whatever the cultural activity being proposed – a quality worthy of the historical significance of our site, and applied to infinite subjects… Our musical programme goes from rapper Abd Al Malik to composer Henri Dutilleux, by way of the music of Nina Simone interpreted by a classical cellist!
FOR YOUNG VISITORS / AND FAMILIES
Something for all tastes and all ages! Children’s illustrators are often amongst the exhibitors at our graphic arts gallery (Solotareff, Claude Ponti). Special family events take place several times a year: workshops, films, concerts… With of course the usual emphasis on quality, for everyone.
