Responding to the invitation of the French Embassy in Belgium, a delegation from the School went to Brussels on October 25, 26 and 27 to meet with both French and Dutch speaking schools. The Embassy is currently conducting a prospecting mission among Belgian art and design schools.
Brussels is a global stronghold, a cosmopolitan city and a fertile ground for cultural and artistic events, it attracts more and more French students every year.
The delegation was composed of Eric Jourdan, Director of Esadse; Magali Coué, Deputy Director; Rodolphe Dognaux, teacher at Esadse and Marina Baudry, in charge of international mobility. The teams of the Embassy were strongly mobilized by the presence of Thomas Michelon, Cultural and Scientific Counsellor; Violène Verduron, Cultural Attaché at the Cooperation and Cultural Action Service and Pauline Beaumont, Intern at the Cooperation and Cultural Action Service.
