Every Saturday morning in Antananarivo, free events, that can take various forms, are offered to the public: conferences, art history lectures “subjective path” in which a speaker (generally an artist or a curator) is invited to propose a guided tour of a current exhibition based on his/her personal reading, meeting or workshop with a resident artist, poetry reading, performances, family tours, etc.
Simultaneously, regular events are organized, directly targeting the local art scene, with periodically organized custom made events (portfolio reading, professional meeting with a curator, book presentation in the library, etc.).
Fondation H hosts temporary exhibitions in both Antananarivo and Paris all year round. It also organizes side events (conferences, guided tours, meetings with artists, etc.) in connection with the exhibitions.
Our cultural mediation team is always present and available. Visitors are welcomed into our spaces and are guided through the exhibition as they wish.
We also offer guided team visits, group visits as well as private visits outside our normal opening hours. The format of visits can be tailored to fit the audience and the time available for the visits.
Aimed at young people (2-18 years old), the Hay program offers tailor-made visits and workshops by age group in conjunction with the exhibitions presented in both spaces in Antananarivo and Paris. Hay is a Malagasy word meaning ‘learned’ or ‘acquired’. The program is built from this perspective of discovery and learning.
Every mornings on working days, throughout the year, Fondation H welcomes groups of children through long-term partnerships established with various structures (primary and secondary schools, NGOs, child support associations). Through these partnerships, each student is welcomed several times a year at Fondation H and can discover the different exhibitions and various workshops and activities. Fondation H covers all costs related to these visits (transport, snacks, workshops, etc.).
As part of this program, Fondation H also holds Hay workshops, open free of charge to children aged 6 to 12, every Wednesday afternoon from 2pm to 4 pm, with a new theme every month.
