Christmas at the Château
Exhibition Manga Nantes そして Niigata
To celebrate the end of the year, these artists have been invited to take over the château. A specific program has also been organized, with activities for children and young adults, as well as events in the museum’s different rooms.
Niigata has been Nantes’ sister city in Japan for nearly four years. Both towns continue to exchange through primarily cultural and artistic projects.
In December 2013, 96 young manga illustrators from JAM College in Niigata came to Nantes to draw inspiration from the city for future creative projects.
They also participated in an exchange with the youth of Nantes. The Château des ducs de Bretagne has asked JAM College to present an exhibition of their work.
For this exhibition, fifty students from one class were invited to draw full-page spreads, which will be framed and displayed in the different rooms of the museum.
