Les Franciscaines: IMAGINATION AT WORK

Occupied since 1878 by the congregation of Franciscan sisters who lived there, this remarkable heritage of Deauville is now a unique place, entirely dedicated to culture. It brings together a museum, an auditorium, an auditorium, exhibition, reading and documentation areas structured around themes dear to Deauville: horses, cinema, entertainment, photography, the art of living and youth. With its innovative scenography, this new place of life in Deauville invites the visitor to become an actor and to put his "imagination to work". Here, there is no set itinerary, everyone chooses according to their inspiration. Shows, concerts, literary meetings, conferences, large exhibitions, cultural events linked to the artistic and editorial news of the place are programmed throughout the year. At the heart of the building, a museum is dedicated to the figurative painter André Hambourg (1909-1999). The Cour des expositions and the Galerie des maîtres host temporary exhibitions.
