The« Artois Culture Nature » association was created in 1997. It was born from the will of a few visionary people in Anzin Saint Aubin who wanted to create a collective project around which people from all social classes and age groups could be brought together.
After two years of preparation, the first Light and Sound Show was presented in 1999. Written by the director Dominique Martens and called :« The Chaussée Brunehaut over the Centuries » it then became, in 2002, “Stories and Dreams in Artois”. The show grew over the years and reached a semi professional level. In 2009, it took place at the Immercourt Park at Saint Laurent Blangy.
All along the year many Artois Culture Nature volunteers use their skills and know how to take up the most difficult challenges such as creating thousands of costumes, magnificent settings and larger than life props while other workers devote their time to creating new special effects or training their horses.
Thanks to the notoriety we have achieved after 20 years of experience and proud of having hosted more than 170.000 spectators, our association has a high regard for values such as social and intergenerational sharing, passing on skills, social diversity and openness to others.
