In order to show the talent of Guadeloupean creators, the Centre des Métiers d’Art invite the public to visit its large anual exhibition intitled “Planète en Tête” until June 19.
After the opening which took place on June 1, from June 4 to 19, the workshops of the Centre des Métiers d’Art (CMA) located in the district of Bergevin in Pointe-à-Pitre present to the public their big annual exhibition. For this edition 2017-2018, this exhibition was intitled “Planète en Tête” (Planet in Head) because the teaching team decided to centre its work on environment problems : “Guadeloupean young people like all citizens are also concerned about these topics. Sometimes they are directly impacted by the scale of some ecological changes. A concret, present and topical example : sargassum and its impact on the beaches of the archipelago”.
It must be noted that it is not the first time that the CMA chooses to deal with the theme of nature but, this year, a real research work was done, several subjects were broached (the city in nature; the transformation of animals; the impact of pollution on nature etc.) in order to make aware and inspire the students who are children, teenagers, adults, disabled persons and over-fifties.
