The Regional Contemporary Art Fund of Burgundy (Frac Bourgogne), as part of its missions of awareness of contemporary creation, implements an educational tool for young people from 5 to 18 years.

With «Le FRAC-LAB», the FRAC Bourgogne takes a different approach where it is no longer the young people who come to the FRAC, but the contemporary art that comes to them.
