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 se penche sur l'urgence d'ouvrir les arts à l'ensemble de la société – à toutes les classes, les ethnicités, les capacités physiques de chacun, et à tous les milieux qui la constituent.

"There is no justification for saying that a poem is intrinsically better than a rap: all that matters is what the poem and the rap bring into existence, their intrinsic quality and the response they can draw from readers or listeners. And yet, cultural policy is still largely constructed on the idea that certain forms, as practiced by certain social groups, are necessarily more valuable than others.
