FRAME Développement

FRAME Développement Overview

FRAME Développement was founded in France in 2012 as a “1901 general interest association” to support FRAME activities. FRAME Développement’s mission is to provide and seek financial support to FRAME’s French member museums for activities that improve knowledge of heritage, support and develop cultural activities at French member museums. These activities are designed on the basis of exchanges of cultural practices on both sides of the Atlantic. FRAME Développement supports exhibitions and education and outreach projects under FRAME’s auspices. Past projects include Bodies and Shadows: Caravaggio and His Legacy, and The Tactile Gallery exhibitions, along with education programs including Curating a Culture of Respect, Bridges Across Borders, and The Art of Inclusion.

FRAME Développement provides an exceptional opportunity for companies and individuals to partner with some of the most prestigious cultural institutions throughout France while enjoying the association with high-profile French-American cultural programs which reach a local, national and international audience to provide wider accessibility to art and heritage for a better understanding between cultures. FRAME Développement assures its patrons a constructive partnership with a strong identity. Donations received by FRAME Développement are eligible for compensation, including the tax deductions provided for in Articles 200 and 238 bis of the French General Tax Code.

While being in solidarity with FRAME, the French law association FRAME Développement benefits from an independent management from the American organization.
