École Supérieure d’Art et Design de Saint-Étienne (Esadse, France)

Saint-Étienne Higher School of Art and Design (Esadse) trains artists, designers and other creatives in many areas of these disciplines. Thanks to a vision that sees art and design as complementary disciplines, its courses are organised to encourage dialogue and synergies between these two streams. In 1998, the teaching teams at the school launched the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne and in 2010, Saint-Étienne became a UNESCO Creative City of Design. The School's Art courses cover all artistic practices and hybrid forms, but what stands out is the attention paid to "doing" and a marked interest in pictorial practices in all their contemporary diversity.

The Arts and Crafts aujourd’hui programme began in 2018 and is led by the Modernity Experimentation Laboratory (LEM).

Académie royale des Beaux-Arts (ArBA, Belgique)

The Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels (ArBA) is a Higher School of Art (ESA) subsidised by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. Its curriculum and teaching aims are governed by its organising authority, the City of Brussels, in line with its education policy.

Founded in 1711, the ArBA-EsA today is a place where a modern curriculum and artistic culture meet a rich history. It is heir to a tradition that has seen layer upon layer of very different artistic practices build up along with new and inventive teaching methods. Today it is positioned in a complex international panorama of higher education institutions, with a focus that is as educational and artistic as it is vocational. It is a place of learning and research and a huge creative and productive workshop that has shaped generations of artists, designers and creators of projects.

The School aims to enable its students to develop their individual artistic and professional practices by positioning them in a space that takes a reflective and critical view of the arts. In recent years, a number of new courses have been created, including masters' in Exhibition Practices, Publishing Practices and Urban Design. It has also created an Institute of Arts and Choreography (ISAC). These new courses bear witness to the School's desire to move forward in its teaching, in line with the practices of the day.
