For three days, visitors have free access, with no need to book, to lectures, debates, concerts, exhibitions, screenings, readings and meetings in the castle and at several sites around the town of Fontainebleau.
The Festival is for everyone – curious people, families, students, teachers, academics, curators, representatives of the various professions in the art world – who practises, loves or wishes to learn more about this fascinating subject.
Each year, a theme, as well as a guest country, is showcased.
The Festival is also an opportunity for pedagogical proposals for the teaching of art history at school, through a Spring University and educational workshops proposed and supported by the Ministry of National Education.
The 10th edition of the Festival has been postponed until 4, 5, and 6 June 2021.
