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.

Today, the analysis of global transformation rarely stresses the cultural dimension. It is rather focused on technology (digital networks, artificial intelligence, genetic manipulation, the Internet of Things for instance), climate change, population growth or economic sustainability. This shows a tendency to attribute historical development mainly to economic, technological, business and demographic factors – as if ideas, creations, institutions and culture played little role in major global change.
The Global Report series has been designed to monitor the implementation of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005). It provides evidence of how this implementation process contributes to attaining the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and targets.
History can be a contentious subject, especially when it comes to determining how and what we remember. That’s especially true in Argentina, which is still trying to come to terms with the legacy of its period of military rule in the 1970s and 80s, which resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of citizens.

Did you know that the ability to access, participate in and contribute to cultural life is considered a human right? In the latest episode of the Culture Sector podcast, “Talking about Culture”, Karima Bennoune, the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about cultural rights, including: What are cultural rights? What is their basis in international law? Can cultural rights ever be used to justify limits on the rights of women and girls? You can listen to this fascinating podcast here.
Brussels-based choreographer, curator, and writer Michiel Vandevelde argues that artists need to reclaim a place of power in the arts sector.
Cultural work with refugees has a long history. It is a contentious area. Instrumental approaches to cultural work with refugees raise significant issues. This briefing outlines the contentions, provides a theoretical basis for the work, gives leading examples of cultural work with refugees, including work that promotes intercultural understanding and work that promotes fear. It outlines key findings and recommendations, which have a substantial focus on ethical engagement, aesthetic importance and societal wellbeing.
This briefing paper explores cultural work with refugees in Europe, analysing the current funding programmes of the European Union. The paper particularly focuses on the Erasmus+, Creative Europe and Europe for Citizens programmes. The findings are complemented by case studies and feedback from EU-funded projects under each programme. The paper provides recommendations for the future EU programme generation.
In the third issue of Polish Theatre Journal, we examine institutional practices in Polish theatre in the context of political and social changes. We analyse conditions for freedom of artistic expression and of mechanisms of censorship; we observe significant conflicts and struggles in theatre life, and scrutinize the entanglement of economic, political and aesthetic determinants.
Julian Meyrick, the Strategic Professor of Creative Arts at Flinders University, argues that our addiction to measuring things has replaced evaluating things – including creativity. So how do you measure cultural activities whose purpose, meaning and hope are ends in themselves?
