Our dual mission

The originality of the Centre des arts, written into its DNA from the very start, is its dual vocation - pedagogical and public. It is with joy and pride that we open our doors to our students, to the public, and to actors in the cultural scene of Geneva.

A rich and varied programme

The Centre des arts hosts staged productions, workshops and conferences, and welcomes resident professional artists.

Through its programming and the development of partnerships with local and international artistic communities, the Centre des arts greatly enriches the teaching programmes of Ecolint. Open to a range of different audiences, it provides Geneva with a genuine cultural platform for the transmission of the arts and interdisciplinary exchanges.
