OVER 20 conferences TO DISCOVER, UNDERSTAND AND ANALYSE THE WORLD OF CREATIVITY

Featuring more than 500 creators, with exhibitions, guided tours and workshops, Révélations is a unique opportunity for initiating exchange and debate and is set to become a genuine forum for reflection. Its extensive programme includes more than twenty lectures suitable for all audiences and available to everyone.

Prolong your tour of this world of creativity and discover the influence of fine crafts in exotic and eclectic countries, including the exceptional participation of Iran, Thailand and several African countries. 

More broadly, let yourself be captivated by the focus on materials, a behind the scenes view of the renovation of the Salle des Fêtes at the Palais de l’Elysée, the challenges of training young creators across Europe, and many other aspects of the fine crafts and creative sector, at the crossroads of cultural, economic and political issues.
