A commitment to the public, a desire to pass on the keys to understanding

Each and every day, contemporary artists create the heritage of tomorrow. So that each may access this richness, the Centre national des arts plastiques (CNAP), at the request of the French Ministry for Culture and Communication (Direction générale de la creation artistique), has established a policy of educational and outreach programmes aimed at receiving and accompanying the most diverse audiences, responding to and going beyond visitor expectations.

This organisation consists of four services:
- a large staff of specialised cultural educators
- targeted learning initiatives
- a constantly updated website
- multidisciplinary events programme throughout the event

The Centre national des arts plastiques is faithful to its aim of public service in offering an educational programme, crucial to understanding the art of today.
