Emergence Mapping Workshop and Projects
The second Festival of Lights audio-visual creation workshop was held in September in conjunction with Epinal’s Festival of the Image. The jury of professionals shortlisted 20 budding artists, either art or performing arts students from different schools (Emile Cohl, Grim Edif, Les Gobelins, École Supérieure d'Art de Lorraine) or freelance artists. The winners spent a week with Festival of Lights ambassador and artist Marie-Jeanne Gauthé, Chloé Mazlo, who won a French film award for her animated short in 2015 and Melvin Le Riboter, who lectures at Les Gobelins in Paris. The theme explored this year was awakening and the circus, and the workshop produced 16 artworks which will have the façade of the Collège Jean Moulin as a backdrop.
