Since 2000, the Frac has benefited from the active and invaluable support of the Association des Amis du Frac Nord-Pas de Calais to help it bring its projects into the community. Veritable ambassadors of the organisation, members of the association are strongly committed to supporting the ambitious project of a new site for the Frac, one of the highlights of ‘Dunkerque Capitale régionale de la Culture en 2013’.

This association has established a number of goals which have in common a desire to share: to promote and facilitate access to contemporary art, to support the work of young artists, to produce artists’ multiple editions and to contribute to the development of exhibitions and to the growth of the Frac’s collections.

At the same time, it offers numerous activities to its members, such as tours of exhibitions, trips, studio visits and, recently, participation in the AAAFRAC (Association d’Associations d’Amis des Frac de Metz, Reims et Lille), alongside Renato Casciani, collector and chair of the Amis du Frac.
