Leave a trace, a collective book

Leave a trace, a collective book
By People

Fondation Ipsen, under the aegis of Fondation de France, was importantly involved during the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the projects carried out, we invited people to send us an artistic creation (photo, painting, text, poem, etc.). The goal was to bear witness to this singular period and to share together our doubts, dreams or hopes. We have received more than 250 contributions and are today happy to present this collective book: “Leave a trace”.


It will be distributed free of charge in French schools, libraries, associations, etc. In addition, we will make the book available in electronic format, compatible with tablets and e-readers.


Even if this project seems creative, it is nonetheless scientific. Indeed, we also wanted to take stock of the lockdown in France and how it was effective in drastically limiting the spread of SARS-Cov2.
