Mission Statement

The ESAD of Reims trains artists and designers over a period of three and five years. The School is a privileged place for creative research and experimentation, open to the realities of contemporary art and design. The aim is to enable each student to determine his / her own way as a creator in the fields of design, scenography, graphics, multimedia and art.

International Role

The ESAD participates in the Erasmus exchange programme (students / teachers) and has signed agreements with a dozen European Schools and Universities. Besides, our School is organizing an exchange with a Chinese Academy, so as to set up joint workshops in Beijing (2007), in Brazzaville (Congo) in 2008, and soon with Design Academy Eindhoven (Netherlands) and the Design Fachhochschule of Aachen (Germany).

National Role

A the local level, the ESAD has close relations with the Champagne-Ardenne Contemporary Art Fund (FRAC), and with the other cultural institutions in Reims: the Fine Arts museum, the national drama centre La Comédie, the national centre for dance & performing arts Le Manège, the national studio for music creation Césaré (common conferences, workshops with choreographers and sound designers). At the national level, ESAD’s students take part in many competitions organised by businesses, especially in the field of gastronomy, the sustainable development and luxury industry.
