11 avril 2018


La Conférence des Écoles supérieures d'Arts appliqués de Paris (Césaap - Écoles Boulle, Duperré, Estienne et Ensaama) accueille du 11 au 13 avril 2018 le congrès international de printemps de l’association CUMULUS. Cumulus est une association internationale d'universités et d'établissements d'arts, design et métiers d’art fondée en 1990. Elle représente actuellement 54 pays avec 257 membres ; c'est la principale association internationale pour l'éducation et la recherche dédiées aux arts et au design. Ce sont plus de 300 représentants des écoles de design du monde entier qui sont accueillis pour cet événement, qui sera l'occasion d'échanger sur les enjeux actuels du design et des métiers d'art.

Doing, imagining, learning, thinking, seeking, innovating, creating, making and building together – leaving behind all that divides, opposes and excludes. To invent tomorrow.

Design is a collective elaboration and a laboratory of possible horizons. It is as much the means to transform our environment as the manner of questioning it. It involves shared perspectives and expertise.
The project-based approach and the spirit of collaboration inherent to design make it a powerful hub of thinking, education and transformation. How can this strength be spread to all areas of life?

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.

LOGO_CÉSAAP_BASELINE-1.02.2017Created in 2016, the Conférence des Écoles supérieures d’Arts appliqués de Paris – CÉSAAP (Conference of Graduate Schools of Applied Arts of Paris) forms a collaborative network of the four public Graduate Schools of Applied Arts of Paris (Boulle, Duperré, Estienne and ENSAAMA), which enables the exchange of ideas and of instructional experimentation, the provision of an experimental Master’s Degree in Design, the opening of lines of research and the heightened visibility of training programmes in applied arts and the art professions in Paris, France and internationally.

CÉSAAP’s ambition is to become an international reference in the field of training in the design professions. It helps to reinforce and increase recognition for the role of Graduate Schools in the field of research and creation, and proposes joint working methods that are conducive to the initiation of new approaches to design.

It enables the implementation of a site policy at a Parisian level that fosters high-performance multi- and interdisciplinary organisation, that pools means and networks and intersects methods, questions, fields of practice and partnerships.

The history of these four schools, some of which were developed in the 19th century, is inextricably linked to the history of the city of Paris, of decorative Arts, of the expansion of arts and crafts, conservatories and museums. The Schools experienced the emergence of teaching in design in a particular atmosphere where the influences of the art professions were decisive. Training in design in these schools is built on this training that it transcends: the tradition of production, of the delicate work of gesture, of material and technique, whether in the fields of fashion, objects or publishing.
