The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie and the Michelangelo Foundation have come together to create an exhibition and event space for the general public, dedicated to watchmaking and fine crafts: Arcades des Arts.

Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie

The Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie was established in 2005 by Audemars Piguet, GirardPerregaux and the Richemont Group. Its objective is to promote Fine Watchmaking worldwide. This ambition takes shape through activities relating to the Foundation’s missions: inform on latest developments, the history and professions of watchmaking; train and recognise professional knowledge; organise events for the industry and the public at large. Partner-brands support the FHH through a financial contribution and assist with implementing its projects.

Michelangelo Foundation

for Creativity and Craftsmanship

The Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship is an international non-profit organisation that celebrates and preserves master craftsmanship and strengthens its connection to the world of design. We want to help people rediscover the ability of the human hand to create, and support those doing it best: the exceptional contemporary European master artisans using long-held traditions, skills and knowledge to make beautiful objects of lasting value. We are named after a beacon in this field, Michelangelo, a visionary artist and master artisan who embodied both creativity and craftsmanship at the very highest level of excellence.
