1994 – L’arc: Littérature et atelier de réflexion contemporaine
The Abbey of St Peter and St Paul in Romainmôtier is the oldest Romanesque abbey church in Switzerland. The Federation of Migros Cooperatives acquires the monastic site in 1981. The renovated building has been home to L'arc – short for “Littérature et atelier de réflexion contemporaine” – since 1994. Arc provides all kinds of creative artists with space in which to work and grow. It also serves as a place of reflection. A variety of approaches including laboratories, workshops, symposiums and discussion groups are possible. The interdisciplinary seminars and workshops accentuate the links between literature, theatre, music and new media.
