FOUNDED IN JULY 2008 BY TEN VISUAL ARTISTS, THE PURPOSE OF THE ERGASTULE ASSOCIATION IS TO PROMOTE CONTEMPORARY CREATION, BY POOLING EXPERIENCES AND TOOLS IN A WORKSHOP IN NANCY.
Ergastule wishes to allow visual artists to exchange and learn the skills necessary for the realization of their projects. It is around the production shared in the workshop that all the uniqueness of this association is developed. Ergastule allows artists to find the skills necessary for their work. Ergastule helps to reaffirm the presence of contemporary visual arts in the Nancy conurbation and the Greater Region. The association combines craftsmanship with the historical requirements of contemporary creation. It produces situations conducive to the appearance of novelty. Ergastule promotes training and creates new partnerships with teaching and cultural reference structures in the East of France.
