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.

"Institutions have to become representative of the soul of Europe. A Europe without a soul, without a clear vocabulary and modern mission is the tragedy of the European project as it stands. A Europe without culture is a Europe without identity, a cold construct, detached from its people, its particularities and its collective aspirations."

The nature of cultural policy is changing with a greater focus on citizen involvement and bottom-up approaches, backed by the profound premise of culture’s role in democracy.

It is expected that art in periods of political polarization or extremism will become more explicitly political, that it will become “engaged,” actively commenting on world affairs, a form of protest or action.
