From April 3rd - 5th, Rennes 2 University will be participating in the 10th edition of the JACES program.

JACES aims to be a showcase for the cultural and artistic achievements of institutions and to provide access to culture for as many people as possible. It will be the opportunity to highlight some of the artistic and cultural events that occur in collaboration with higher education institutions. 

With the help of Rennes 2's Cultural Services Office, we invite all of our community to come see, hear discover,  and participate in the program prepared by the Cultural Services Office of Rennes 2.
