Understanding today’s world. Share our questions. This international festival of human and social sciences and philosophy, joined by artists from the performing arts, focuses on the major issues facing our society. After a week of discussions hosted by the Villa Gillet, Les Subsistances and the Villa Gillet invite thinkers and performing artists to try to elicit materials, images, and words to help us make our way through contemporary issues. Take the time for questions, agree to disagree, imagine solutions: figure out how to make it work.

> Live at Subsistances : performances, live art, debates,…

Knowledge is for sharing! “Is the universe infinite?” “What was the first written language invented?” “Why is a hard-boiled egg hard?” “What does ‘to be born’ mean?” An idea, a topic, 20 minutes to get an expert’s view. Dozens of researchers and specialists, from young professors and artisans to passionate amateurs, will explain the fundamental concepts of a subject or their research. Whether you’re 5 or 100, in kindergarten or an avid reader, La foire aux saviors will incite your curiosity and answer your questions. Two week-ends of meetings at Les Subsistances and the Hôtel de Région, answers to hundreds of questions! Choose you courses! After a “mini language course,” come back for a “mini knowledge course”!
