Situated at Sion from its creation, the EPAC moved in 2001 into new premises thanks to support from the commune of Saxon. A disused cinema was reborn as a school and provides the commune with its primary site for art and culture.

 

The aim of the school remains unchanged since 1993: to develop a unique and transdisciplinary training around the narrative arts, while remaining on the watch for the development of new media derived from emerging technologies.
