Each year in September, Back to School in Images welcomes in Arles 320 classes ranging from kindergarten through to the Masters level and 700 teachers from all disciplines.

The programme offers a personal approach to photography and a dialogue between the arts (history, architecture, photography, visual arts) by offering students the possibility of screenings, guided exhibition visits, tours of Arles’ heritage sites, meeting image professionals and participating in practical workshops.

Each registered class benefits from a customised programme developed with the collaboration of a dozen cultural partner organisations. The classes are accompanied by twenty-five, specially trained outreach staff with a background in art and photography.

Raising awareness about photography and contemporary art, developing the ability to analyse a work of art, fostering curiosity, a critical mind and artistic creativity are all an integral part of this project.
