Dimension temporelle / Marlène Simon - expérience de réalité virtuelle
Première activation du projet "Talonnement", porté par Mathilde Gérard :  l'enjeu est l'activation c'est-à-dire proposer une autre formule que celle de l’exposition pour expliquer l'art et trouver différentes stratégies ( lectures, performances, projections interactives, conférences, travail d’atelier public, …).
L’activation est considérée comme un terrain de recherche, et la recherche comme un travail plastique à part entière.

The ARTEM Alliance has led to the development of one of the rare educational programs in video games in France. It combines two worlds, those of the arts and sciences, to the extent that it has now become a discipline in its own right, with its own fairs, conferences, scientific publications and its teaching and study programs.

For one semester, students from the ENSAD (École nationale supérieure d'art et de design de Nancy), and from Mines Nancy work together on creating video games. They will be joined by students from ICN at the start of the academic year 2016.

Students are divided into mixed groups to create the concepts and the scenarios for their games. The workshops last several days, and on a weekly basis, so the work is regular and intense! Students from Mines Nancy encode the games, whilst ENSAD students create the characters, develop their movements and design the sets where the characters play out their actions.

There is a presentation of the games before members of the public in June at L’Autre Canal. This enables the students to test their creations with real fans and consumers.

The project uses skills and activities already in place in schools for pupils who do not have the advantage of living in an environment which is favorable to further and higher education study. In some instances these initiatives have been in place for a number of years. Students from the ARTEM Alliance improve and extend these initiatives and enhance the structure through new partnerships..

The ARTEM Pathway project ‘ARTEM - Ensemble vers l’avenir’ develops three types of activity: 

  • A joint system of tutorial guidance and activities intended for all the pupils in the Project: information about the project and about the opportunities for further study, with visits to the three ARTEM Schools, meetings with the students, etc., information about the different functions of an engineer, a business manager, director of a company (with visits to companies and meetings with professional practitioners), conferences, specialist workshops, and discussion groups (on current affairs, for example) ,
  • Individual guidance tutorials to help the school pupils to overcome any methodological or organizational difficulties they may have, or any difficulties in learning and acquiring knowledge, 
  • Participation in cultural events and exhibitions, to widen the pupils’ horizons and raise their expectations: museums, theater, opera, artists’ workshops, experimental cinema, etc.

In preparation for the creation of Villa Artem which should be completed by 2019, the Nancy ENSAD wanted to set up immediately, along with ICN Business School and Mines Nancy, a new kind of incubator. This will be called Stand Up – Artem and will have the support of financial help from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, and from the Regional Council for the north-east of France. The project will, over the next two years, make available, for selected graduates and students who have an enterprising project, the material conditions of the ARTEM eco-system for them to pursue their professional project or their enterprise start-up..  Stand up - Artem will support them by providing a structure of help, advice and finance during the first stages of their project.

Artem Entreprises

As well as being an alliance between three Graduate Schools, the ARTEM community also includes some forty company directors who are committed to this unique model of interdisciplinary teaching and its added value for students and graduates seeking internships or a first employment.

In a concern to become more involved than ever in the alliance, ARTEM Entreprises is now located on the ARTEM campus where it has its own purpose-built premises for promoting enterprise. Its proximity to ARTEM students and research Faculty means that relations between the Schools and companies are so much more closely developed. It also puts students and staff in direct contact with the new requirements of business and the economy.
