Matters of Fact

Fake news, alternative facts, virtual realities... Media that were meant to connect us are taking on a life of their own. They blur borders between the actual world and its image and they answer questions about true or false with the loudest voice or strongest image. Our workshops this year offer a reality-check. They dip your hands into matter, confront ancient knowledge with high-tech, engage you with innovative companies and let you connect to real people - here and now!

What spending a week at Boisbuchet is like

For over 25 years, CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Education Culturelle et Agricole), the non-profit organisation running Boisbuchet's program, organises interdisciplinary workshops. Participants from all over the world live and work here together with noted designers, architects, and artists - not to come up with perfect results, but to gain insights into the creative process and the challenges involved.
