Every year, students organize cultural events : “Japanese Day , “Korean Day” and “Chinese New Year”. On those days the school welcomes a public keen to discover Asian cultures with ateliers animated by the students themselves : music, theatre, dance, cooking, calligraphy, history…

Quimper used to be the ancient capital of Cornouaille, Brittany’s most traditional region. It is therefore a city of art filled with history and culture with a distinctive Breton character. The town has a rustic atmosphere with footbridges spanning the two rivers that flow through it. The name Quimper comes from the Breton kemper ” confluent ” because the city was built on the confluence of the two rivers.
It is a popular tourist destination with its gothic cathedral from the 13rd century, around which are the pedestrianized cobbled-stoned streets of Vieux Quimper with a wide array of crêperies, half-timbered houses and shops. Quimper is also the home of the Grande Maison HB-Henriot, founded in the 15th century, and now known all over the world for its tradition of producing and hand painting its own faience.
