About us

Our principles of creation

In 2016, on the initiative of the Hauts-de-France region, and its President Xavier Bertrand, in agreement with the French Ministry of Culture and Amiens Métropole, the association « Art & jardins – Hauts-de-France » takes over the production and the management of the Festival « Art, cities & landscape – Amiens », and will develop many other perennial projects.

Producer of contemporary gardens and artworks in public spaces; the association is revealing and questioning the heritage sites of the region and applies the principles of sustainable development in its practices, both in the creative process and in the promotion of works of art and events. By facilitating social integration through a work inclusion group, by rising environmental awareness, by stimulating economic development with tourism attractiveness, the association embodies a shared cultural project with artists, residents, people furthest from the job market and visitors.

 

Social integration

Art & jardins pays particular attention to social integration through work and therefore focuses on the return to employment of the long-term unemployed and young people. Several existing public schemes are already being used: integration projects, civic services, apprenticeship contracts, etc. In addition to promoting a return to the labor market, these mechanisms also aim to strengthen the labor market processes, socialization and the development of social bonds among people who feel increasingly excluded.

 

Thus, our projects have an asserted social aim as the maintenance of gardens, upstream and downstream of the artistic creation, is ensured by an inclusion workshop. The 12 workers of the one year long workshop (for which we are autorized) intervene mainly on the Hortillonnages, along the valley of the Somme, and on the gardens of peace of Péronne and Thiepval. Other inclusion workshop, municipal or community-based, are called in reinforcement, notably on the gardens of Le Quesnoy in the North and Craonne in the Aisne.

 

 

Sustainable development

Art & Jardins – Hauts-de-France projects are also involved in environmental awareness through the production of works of art that highlight issues related to the environment: water and food resources, sustainable agriculture, news energies, conflicts and migration …) This can be translated either by the active participation of the public during the creation of the work; or by the presentation of works that – by their nature or purpose – are addressed directly to the viewers (eg interactive creations, works with a pedagogical scope).

For example, the issue of feeding areas is important in the region. The Hauts-de-France are as much characterized by the extent of agricultural land as by the tradition of allotment gardens. This project can make it possible, with a participative spirit, to create and stimulate actions in the field of gardening by launching projects locally.
