The current situation due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the resulting government measures linked to the sanitary crisis, will continue to have a major impact on GOBELINS' international activities. Higher education institutions in France will be closed until September 2020 and our international borders are likely to be closed until this date too.

Since the creation of our Summer School, more than 16 years ago, this programme has been increasingly popular and it is a very special moment for GOBELINS to welcome its participants from all over the world. 

Unfortunately, the current context does not leave us any choice but to cancel the organisation of our traditional Summer School in Animation, which was to take place in July. Participants already registered are going to be contacted individually for refunds.

Regarding the Summer School in Visual Storytelling, we will, however, be able to offer an on-line version taking place between the 29th June and the 10th of July 2020. 
At the moment, our teams are working hard to design the adaptation of the programme.  We will communicate the new programme and its conditions (technical and financial) by the end of May. Participants already enrolled are going to be contacted individually within the next few days.
