# Who are we ?

Established in 2018 by the EDIS endowment, the Grenier à sel is a space for discovering and sharing digital culture, which explores the rich ferment of current artistic practices. It hosts a cross-disciplinary programme that fosters the pleasure of discovering, experimenting and interacting around singular art forms, close to the works and their creators. Exhibitions, performances, concerts, residencies, audiences-with and workshops are held all year round, showcasing the inventive flair of today’s artists.

# The building

Situated in central Avignon near the Papal Palace, the Grenier à sel is housed in the former salt storehouse. It is one of the oldest buildings in « the city of the popes », dating from the 14th century. Demolished several times, it was rebuilt in 1758 by the architect Jean-Ange Brun, and listed as a historic monument in 1984. The architecture and location of the building, on the banks of the River Rhône, undescore the importance of salt during the Ancien Regime.
