Welcome to our support platform for setting up an International Sculpture Symposium.

We firmly believe that an offer to the general public of an event in monumental sculptures is a real opportunity to meet art and artists.

The involvement of the social partners in the economic fabric of the region of each Symposium is a fundamental requirement for its smooth running.

Observation, dialogues, pedagogy are the key words that connect us to the public.

During a sculpture symposium everyone can get involved with the artists, because our objective is to support neophytes.

Thanks to exchanges with professional sculptor artists, we develop the spirit, the heart, which allow everyone to be sensitive to art and even try their hand at creation through introductory sculpture workshops.

Monumental sculptures are now permanently installed in parks and French cities but also throughout the world: this is how each Symposium allows the sharing of international cultures and offers the possibility of public facilities through the works produced.

hout the world: this is how each Symposium allows international cultures to be shared.

The origins

The concept of an international sculpture symposium was born in Austria in 1959 on the initiative of sculptor artists wishing to improve exchanges between them.
In France, it was not until 1967 that the first international sculpture symposium was born in the city of Grenoble by public order.
The first sculpture symposia focused solely on limestone and marble thanks to partnerships and sponsorships of companies specializing in the extraction and marketing of stone, thus highlighting their materials.

If this event promotes intellectual and professional exchanges between artists, it also creates a cultural offer for local populations by immersing them in the act of artistic creation.

By organizing an International Sculpture Symposium, we offer local authorities and private companies access to a series of monumental sculptures.


Cities, Communities of Communes:

  • Insertion in urban areas and in cultural sites frequented by the local population of monumental sculptures.
  • Creation of cultural events in which local populations and artists from different countries meet and exchange.
  • Provoke educational encounters for the youngest around sculpture.

Private companies :

  • Furnishing of premises or sites with works by internationally known artists.
  • Propose artistic solutions using materials from their own catalog (companies that deal with steel, wood, concrete, stone) but also on less known materials: Hay, Snow, Ice, plastic recycling following a public collection.


To offer communities or major accounts monumental sculptures, made in public, which will later become their artistic heritage.

Creation of an international artistic event which will offer:
The spectacular “live” creation of monumental sculptures.
The meeting of the public with international professional artists at work in a highly educational event.
Lectures and public presentations by international artists.
A group exhibition of sculptures during the symposium.
The opportunity to learn about sculpture.
A cultural exchange in collaboration between international artists and local artists. The sculpture symposium is an opportunity for artists to share their experiences, concepts and information about their artistic activity. This event also gives artists the opportunity to start collaborating internationally.

Implementation of a further development of mobile sculpture workshops organized according to the requests generated by the “active” public encountered during the Symposium.

The sculpture symposium is a time for sharing knowledge between artists, but also with the public.

It is on this desire to transmit the profession and to make it known that we propose the holding of initiation workshops in stone sculpture.

The particularity of these « Discovery » workshops is to propose the creation of a monumental common sculpture, an event in which the local population becomes an actor in the sculpture symposium.

This completed sculpture will become an intergenerational link, anchored in the local landscape.
