The A Graphic Odyssey program explores the world of typography and its staging.
The adventure begins with an immersion at the Métairie Bruyère, a unique graphic design center in Europe, located near the Ma.Na campus. During one week, the participants discover the ancestral profession of typographer by creating their own typography.
Back at the campus, the second step consists in bringing this typography to life and putting it on stage, like a theater or movie set: on the walls of houses, shop fronts or museum facades, or for an entire village…
During this program, participants (re)learn the basics of typography, the methodology of graphic creation, urban signage, the art of circulating, of living in a public space and learn the profession of Signwriter, by creating a dreamlike, functional and powerful full scale installation.
