More than an exhibition center, Fonderie Darling is a veritable ecosystem combining production studios, artist residencies and educational spaces, open to the world thanks to the public square in front of its buildings. Today, this heritage site thrives on the support of its community, composed of donors, partners, cultural workers, friends, its public and, above all, the artists who continue to occupy the site and bring it to life. This campaign calls on the generosity of those who remain inhabited by their visits to Fonderie Darling, through encounters with the artworks on display, the discovery of new artists and experiences, appreciation of the architectural heritage, or a personal connection to the values of the organization.
