l’art en plus advises the Fondation François Schneider since 2017.
Philanthropic foundation, established in 2000 and recognized as a body acting in the public interest in 2005, the François Schneider Foundation, works in the twin fields of culture and education. The Foundation enables secondary school pupils to access higher education by offering them grants and assists contemporary artists by supporting the diffusion of their work.The Foundation, directed by Marie Terrieux, encourages creative activity through various initiatives devoted to the theme of water, including an international competition, the acquisition of works for its collection and the organization of themed exhibitions in its contemporary art center and sculpture garden. This work is complemented by publications, loans, travelling exhibitions and a residency program for young artists from art schools along the Rhine. Located beside the Rhine, which runs from Switzerland to the Netherlands by way of France and Germany, the Fondation François Schneider places interculturality at the heart of its programming, aiming to bring about fruitful contacts between artists and the local populations of these different areas.
