Program Description

The Horizons “Arts-Nature” in Sancy event, programmed for 13th June till 20th September 2020, will be the fourteenth contemporary art based event. The pieces are short-lived and specifically made for the Sancy massif (heart of the Massif Central in France). Managed by the Sancy Tourist Office, the call for projects involves the creation of 10 works of art into the territory of The Sancy Massif Community of Municipalities. This event is first and foremost a site specific project which likes to think of itself as long lasting and which involves all the local authorities and players in the tourist trade concerned. Horizons “Arts-Nature” in Sancy is an artistic event of national influence and freely accessible; it is aimed at people of all kinds, informed or not. The works of art will be put up in places where they highlight the surrounding countryside’s qualities. Discovery trails and Art workshops for children are held around the art piece in order to mediate their content.
