Every year, the « Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art » allow young and not so young to visit art and craft professionals. The theme of the 12th edition is « Futurs en transmissions ». It questions the links between past and future through the rise of digital cultures.

We presented the 2017 edition about « savoir(-)faire du lien ». This year, let’s take the same (and many more) and have some more fun! The principle does not change: discover the art jobs inside professionals’ workshops and art training centers or through original events. It is a European event and each region has its own features. No limit for the public, everyone from beginner to confirmed collector is welcome.

From the 3rd to the 8th of April no more than 6 278 events will be organized in France within 52 itineraries. Beyond the usual workshops visits, the « Rendez-vous d’exception »  will be the way to discover the know-how of excellence thanks to the prestigious fabrics, « d’Entreprises du Patrimoine Vivant » and « Meilleurs Ouvriers de France » openings. We advise especially the « Atelier sculpture et matériaux composites de l’Opéra Bastille », the « Rencontres avec les quatre maisons d’art du Moulin Rouge » or the «  Découverte exceptionnelle des ateliers du CRAFT Limoges » (« Centre de recherche sur les arts du feu et de la terre »).

The cultural offer does not let our European friends and expatriates down. Shows are present from Belgium to Italy including Bulgaria. Check up the European program here.

You have no apologies to miss all these exchange moments thanks to our digital age. The function « autour de moi »  on the JEMA website aims to find available activities locations on the map. It is a wonderful way to prepare to the launch of the « Pass Culture » that will be tested in four departments in next September. This mobile app is designed by the Ministry of Culture and aims to promote the cultural goods consumption by bringing closer 18 years old people and cultural places. Every account will be credited of a 500 € amount that could be spent in many shops and contractors.

2018, the cultural year for France?
