Description of Organisation:

D’Arts et de rêves was founded by a writer, a sculptor and a circus artist who wanted to give artists of those disciplines the opportunity to create and research in a beautiful inspiring environment. They renovated a barn dated from the last century situated in a seven acre park. They surrounded themselves with professional people from the three disciplines to form a non-profit organization focused on its nature culture vocation.
