CO-OP:Paris,France-Texas is a creative voyage. It provides a learning opportunity for a talented group of young artists from France to meet with local Texas institutions including universities, schools, and museums. The purpose of this project is to create an international cultural exchange between young artists from low-income neighborhoods from both France and Texas.
In the future, FACE-USA plans to follow up this project with a second voyage with group of young artists from Texas to France.
All of these events will be organized under the direction of Texas-French artist, Monte Laster.
