Born out of Hervé and Estelle Francès’ passion for art, the Fondation Francès was established in 2006, as a centre for the democratisation of contemporary art. With strong views on the role of art as a vehicle of social engagement, the couple seek to promote in their institution cultural and political exchange in order to nurture contemporary culture. Officially labeled a city and country of art and history, Senlis provides the perfect environment for the social mission of the Fondation Francè, bringing contemporary art together with the rich cultural heritage of the city.
