This month we at SCIN are really looking forward to attending the “Creative Jam in the City” event at the Biscuit Building on the 22nd October.
If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if a city were to be given over to artists and the impact that would have both economically and culturally, then this is most certainly the event for you.
Cultural arts instigator Jean Blaise will be show casing his approach to Le Voyage a Nantes - an arts project that has gradually transformed Nantes from declining port city to a national arts destination and beyond a true story of cultural renaissance.
Le Voyage a Nantes has created an arts trail round the city transforming public space, the city’s relationship with its river, and the way both are viewed, creating thought provoking experiences and installations; from semi submerged sea monsters rising from the river, to amorphous shapeless cafes, giant tape measures to the planned launch of a river ferry designed by Thomas Heatherwick in 2017/ 2018.
Cultural impresario Jean Blaise will be introducing his approach, demonstrated with playful artworks, supported by artist Jean Jullien, and musicians Kokomo. And it could hardly be a French arts event without a glass of wine and a selection of wonderful wine and cheese from the Nantes region. So come visit, chat, learn, drink – vive l”arts!
