In the context of the Paris 2018 Cumulus Conference hosted by the Césaap partnership of the four Parisian schools of Art & Design – Boulle, Duperré, Estienne and Ensaama – an international transdisciplinary workshop will be proposed to students from colleges affiliated to Cumulus.

On the museum’s invitation, the Together at the Centre Pompidou workshop will take place within the Centre Pompidou from Tuesday April 3rd to Saturday April 7th 2018, and will offer young designers the possibility of working in teams on subjects linked to the living museum as embodied by the Centre Pompidou. The students will be invited to approach the works, the collections, the site, and the missions of the museum with a designer’s eye.

This is a real opportunity for in situ transdisciplinary work in the context of an international learning exchange. The project will be supervised by a team of teachers from the four Parisian schools and coordinated by Jérôme Picard from the Norwegian architecture agency 3RW. It will also benefit from the support and equipment of the curatorial and cultural communication departments of the Centre Pompidou.
