The Prix Savoir-faire en transmission (ex – Prix de perfectionnement aux métiers d’art), are awarded each year by the City of Paris. They are endowed with 10,000 euros to allow the laureates to perfect their training by being welcomed with an internship in an artisan’s workshop, full time, for one year. The winners are selected based on the consistency of their careers, their motivation and the quality of their work, without any specific diploma condition. The twelve-month internship starts in January or April , depending on the choice of the successful candidate. Twenty-two prizes will be awarded in 2021.
For this 2021 edition, the Fondation Rémy Cointreau has joined forces with the City of Paris to create four new Prix Savoir-faire en transmission (ex – Prix de perfectionnement aux métiers d’art).
With its heritage and its roots in New Aquitaine, the Foundation offers among its four prizes the opportunity for Parisians, both young adults and those who have changed career paths, to improve their skills in an artisan’s workshop from Nouvelle Aquitaine. Or conversely to those from Nouvelle Aquitaine, to improve their skills with a Parisian art artisan.
Call for applications open until 25 October.
Fondation Rémy Cointreau is pleased to announce the creation of its YouTube channel, as part of its ongoing commitment to sharing knowledge and supporting the transmission of art and craft trades. The channel will introduce you to the unique know-how of its laureates.
