The Jan Michalski Foundation in Montricher is a place entirely dedicated to literature, and where a writers’ residency, library, an auditorium and exhibition hall coexist under a superb canopy in perfect harmony with Mother Nature. It is located in magnificent countryside, at the foot of the Jura, facing Lake Geneva and the Alps.
The library is a workspace open to anyone, it brings together more than 80,000 multicultural masterpieces in languages from around the world on five floors. Its rich collection, creative domain and literary know-how, are available in hard copy or digital form.
The foundation’s cultural space is dedicated to temporary exhibitions. It is a place for artists and writers to meet and share amongst themselves, bringing a new look at great artists’ work of art or present private collections.
The café le Canopée is a café-library that invites its visitors to read, dream, chat, meet and, of course, eat (home-made snacks).
