« Whether curating an event or conceiving a new service, myths provide an invaluable creative resource. Young professionals taking part in Fabrice’s workshops may at first be surprised with his unconventional approach, but they quickly engage in his creative game.»
Laurent Jaudon, Head of the Ecole de la Cité (2012-18)
The brainchild of multi-award winning French producer-director Luc Besson, the Ecole de la Cité puts talent first.
