Inclusion

Nous sommes convaincus que c’est dans la nature des arts de brandir un miroir critique de la société, et de briser les barrières  entre ses différents groupes. Cependant, notre secteur reflète-t-il fidèlement les communautés dans lesquelles nous vivons ?

Ce débat met en avant la nécessité d’ouvrir les arts à toute la société – à toutes les classes, les ethnicités, les religions, les capacités physiques, et les milieux qui la constituent.

Aujourd’hui, avec l’afflux de réfugiés et la diversité croissante au sein des pays de l’UE, nous nous efforçons plus que jamais d’amener ce sujet au cœur du débat public et politique.

In the not too dim and distant past, the word might have elicited groans – another thing to think about, another box to tick. Responding to a variety of audience needs can be demanding especially when it has been about physical space, for example, adapting old buildings to modern day demands.

Among the new approaches to the management of cultural diversity, multiculturalism became a widely popular solution early on. As any other solution, it had to be pushed forward. “The concrete benefits of multicultural citizenship include higher levels of naturalization, greater incorporation into the political system, and less violent debates about the accommodation of diversity” (Bloemrad, 2007, p. 170-171).
