Ecole Neptune, 2010
Conceived in collaboration with the educational community, the educational programme offered by FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais enables participants to discover its exhibitions at the same time as it builds bridges with school and educational programmes. The expectations formulated by the teaching of art history in schools, secondary schools, grammar schools and higher education institutions are thus reflected in the visits, workshops and resources linked with the exhibitions. In partnership with the local education authority and with the regional centre for pedagogical documentation, the FRAC offers educational opportunities and pedagogical resources around its collection and exhibitions.
How to spend an educational day at the FRAC
Located in the Grand Large district of Dunkirk, FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais is a unique venue in Europe. With its three exhibition spaces, its cinema and visual arts studio and research laboratory (both made available by request), it is the ideal place to develop an artistic and academic project.
In addition to its on-site resources it has formed, with its neighbouring museum, the LAAC (Lieu d’Art et Action Contemporaine), the Pôle Art Contemporain. When moving from one venue to the other, we invite you to partake of an audio stroll conceived by the artist Rainier Lericolais: The Sound of the Dunes.
