À travers le monde

Alors que dans certains pays d’Europe les arts sont pris au piège des réalités du marché et opprimés par des exigences telles que le surplus économiques, la liberté créative est engloutie par les agendas politiques et étouffée par la présence des états dans les arts.

Libéralisme, liberté, financement public, ingérence étatique ; ces notions - que nous avons tous en tête de temps en temps - sont-elles perçues de la même façon dans des contextes historiques, économiques et sociaux différents ? Cette section nous donne un aperçu des divers paradigmes, défis et aspirations qui prévalent aux quatre coins du monde.

'Wales' - picture by Michał Huniewicz on Flicker
If Wales is known throughout the world it is most likely for its singing. The Welsh have often been heard to refer to it as “The Land of Song”, and although that might conjure up images of the echoing majestic voices of a Male Voice Choir, or Shirley Bassey’s wide arms, Tom Jones’ thrusting hips, or even Harry Secombe ’s Sunday evening hymns, the significance of this national attachment to “the voice” goes deeper than a simple love of singing. Wales’ deserved reputation for choric excellence has something much more keenly to do with communities, with social centre-points, but also with performance.
