About the museum

The Emperi museum, in association with the class of 5e4 at the College Jean Moulin in Salon de Provence, have been working together on a digital presentation for the nation-wide project “La classe, l’oeuvre” – “One Class, One Work of Art”.

The Emperi Castle is one of the oldest castles in Provence still standing, one of the three most important, along with The Pope’s Palace in Avignon and King René’s castle in Tarascon.

Built in the 10th Century, the castle symbolises the feudal authority of the Archbishop of Arles over the Salon territory.

Since 1967, the castle has held the national collection of the Brunon brothers as part of a convention with the Museum of the Army in Paris.

For the second year running, College Jean Moulin has a class dedicated to innovation.

The class teachers have been developing different methods, both collaborative and cooperative, to modify their way of teaching. These methods have so far included Mantle of the Expert, Project Based Learning, Workplans, Webradio, Co-design… with the emphasis on collaboration, creativity and information technology.

Led by Mrs Phillips, the class’ English teacher, the project “One Class, One Work of Art” has been this year’s new challenge for the class of 5e4. The students first discovered the castle, its history and the collection. They then created a new guided visit, aimed at teenagers, which has been worked on in History, French, English, and Documentation.

“One Class, One Work of Art” is an initiative of the Department of Culture and the Department of Education. It is an artistic and cultural educational project, which aims to promote all of the partnerships between schools and museums all over France. The various projects are presented to the general public on the occasion of the yearly event in May, “A Night at the Museum”.

Reseau Canopé has been a partner in this initiative since its creation.
