Once again this year, the French Jules Verne School in Helsinki organizes the “Artists at School” project. This project aims to getting the pupils to discover the local culture through varied artistic techniques. For that purpose, the school is looking for artists to lead workshops in the classes, from the nursery school to the elementary school. The workshops will be completed by an exhibition or a show at the French Institute or a different favorable location.

The theme of this year’s project is centered on namesake of the school, the writer Jules Verne: his imagination, his journeys, the Verne universe imagined by the filmmaker Georges Méliès – or quite a different fantastic type of journey, it’s up to you.

If you are interested to participate in this project, please send us your dossier (curriculum vitae, presentation of your workshop project from its conception to its final realization, preferred age group) by e-mail to direction@ecolejulesvernes.fi or by letter at School Jules Verne, Ratakatu 6A, 00120 Helsinki, before October 8th, 2013.
