Programming and events

From the very outset, Chambord was dedicated to the arts; following its construction by Francis I, numerous artists came to participate in the festivities of the royal court or for entertainment proposed by the king. Ever since that time, the tradition has been preserved, as rulers and personalities alike have left traces of their presence on the site.
Faithful to this centuries-old artistic tradition, in 2010 the National Estate of Chambord brought into being a far-reaching cultural program, which in its broad outlines showcases the three major cultural fields of the Renaissance: texts, music, and the fine arts (theater and dance have been added on). The artists having exhibited their works in Chambord since 2010 include Georges Rousse, Paul Rebeyrolle, Guillaume Bruère, Djamel Tatah and Philippe Cognée
