Valeurs de la culture

Le monde d’aujourd’hui ne pense qu’à mesurer l’impact de chaque activité publique (subventionnée). Votre projet présuppose-t-il qu’il faille dépenser de l’argent public ? Si oui, soyez prêt à justifier sa valeur avec des nombres et des faits concrets à l’appui.

Même si de nombreuses études ont révélé que la culture influençait fortement la création d’emplois et la croissance économique, il est difficile de quantifier l’impact intangible des arts.

While the media and popular culture may portray refugee camps mainly as places of desperation, human rights workers know that they are complex communities teeming with economic, social, and artistic life. Social-justice oriented theater professionals have found refugee camps to be a vital and vibrant place to practice their craft. But like any human rights or social justice work, refugee theater projects must be culturally sensitive and ethically-responsible.
The inclusion of migrants and refugees: the role of cultural organisations
Elena DI FEDERICO
Where to start? What do we need to know? What to do and how? These are frequently asked questions among cultural professionals interested in contributing to the inclusion of migrants and refugees in our societies. It is necessary to have access to the knowledge and tools that will allow us to reflect on the situation we are currently facing and to develop programmes and actions that can address the concerns and needs of the society, including those of the newcomers. With this publication, Portugues organisation Acesso Cultura aims to help meeting some of these needs.

An island: Lampedusa. Lampedusa the symbol, Lampedusa the mirage, Lampedusa the nightmare. Lampedusa mirrors dreams and frustrations, hopes and stereotypes of two lands, Tunisia and Italy, united and divided by the Mediterranean Sea, with the small island of Sicily in the very middle... Un’isola: Lampedusa. Lampedusa il simbolo, Lampedusa il miraggio, Lampedusa l’incubo. Lampedusa come specchio dei sogni e delle frustrazioni, delle speranze e degli stereotipi di due terre, la Tunisia e l’Italia, unite e divise dal Mediterraneo, con la piccola isola della Sicilia al loro centro...

Like all citizens and their organisations, artists are part of civil society. They have a distinctive role within it when their work gives voice and visibility to people who are marginalised or not easily heard. In all societies some groups and interests dominate, thanks to their position, strength or control of resources. For everyone else, culture may be the only legitimate (or safe) form of expression.

Thanks to the support of the Arts Council, in 2016 #WakingTheFeminists commissioned groundbreaking research into the gender balance in ten of the top publicly funded theatre organisations over a ten-year period from 2006-2015, as a way to create a baseline from which these changes can be measured. This report is the piece of the puzzle that was missing, the research that never existed. And you will find that it is stark.

Cultural institutions across Europe should create new museums and exhibitions dedicated to migration, as arts and culture are “uniquely placed” to empower refugees, a major new European Union (EU) report has concluded.

IETM Bucharest session "How to save Europe?" addressed the gloomy reality Europe is living through: democratic deficit, institutional crisis, increasingly predominant populist and nationalist rhetoric, social disintegration. A group of around 50 participants coming from very diverse realities attempted to identify the ways in which culture and the arts can help overcoming the depression Europe has been driven to.

One of the great paradoxes of human endeavour is why so much time and effort is spent on creating things and indulging in behaviour with no obvious survival value – behaviour otherwise known as art.
