Daniel Toupenet, Director of Autograf
Tell us about your studies.
I have a DEA in plastic arts (supervised by Edmond Couchot) and in philosophy. I’ve also independently studied multimedia production.
What have been the highlights of your career?
I joined Autograf in 1998 as Multimedia Project Manager. I became Director of Education in 2000 and Director General in 2005. Throughout I have taught philosophy, history of art and photography.
I am pleased to say I am now the proud owner of Autograf.
What sets your institution apart?
Autograf is a friendly, professional place.
Out teaching and admin teams are highly approachable, available and attentive to the needs of everyone – students, teachers, parents and visitors. All our teachers are highly experienced, with specialist knowledge, professional experience and proven teaching skills.
What was your experience of this year’s FEDE General Assembly?
It was the FEDE Chairwoman Claude Vivier Le Got who encouraged me to attend the GA in Malaga. It was my first General Assembly, and I was not disappointed. I am hopeful that the contacts I made with other institutions, particularly during the Academic Dating, will soon bear fruit.
