Cumulus Conference 2018
Paris – 11, 12, 13 April 2018
The Cumulus conference 2018 in Paris is adopting a cross-curricular interdisciplinary approach which highlights the collective and collaborative interest. Its aim is to make otherness a positive force and to ensure that design and this union of talents become an undeniable tool for action on reality. In partnership for the past two years within the framework of CÉSAAP, the four Parisian Schools of Art and Design, Boulle, Duperré, Estienne, and Ensaama have decided to share their expertise, to mutualise experiences and to host Cumulus conference to invent tomorrow, together.
