Arts and Cultural Education in the Academy of Strasbourg

Arts and cultural education in schools is implemented within the framework of the Gip-Acmisa (Groupement d'intérêt public - action culturelle en milieu scolaire d'Alsace) formed between the Academy, the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs Grand Est, communities (cities of Colmar, Mulhouse, Strasbourg, Eurométropole de Strasbourg and the European Community of Alsace) and patrons (teaching mutual credit) and in partnership with the Grand Est region.

Of all the schemes supported by the GIP-Acmisa, the residency is part of the students' artistic and cultural education and radiates over a territory.

Artist residency, a specific artistic and cultural education system

The residency implements three fundamental approaches to arts and cultural education:
- the encounter with a work through the discovery of a creative process;
- artistic practice, cultural practice through the linking of different fields of knowledge
- the construction of an aesthetic judgment.

It also encourages the discovery and use of places of creation and artistic diffusion.
It aims to instill a dynamic that takes into account the specific characteristics of each territory, in terms of pedagogical, artistic and cultural issues. Thus a residence is nourished by the encounters that the artistic teams have with the population living in this territory, above all with the children and the young of school age

Context of the artist residency in a school setting

In its educational and educational dimension, residency is the focal point of several projects.

- the residence is part of a project approach :
- a project to create a professional artist or artistic team;
- educational project of cultural openness, meeting the places of culture of a territory;
- artistic and cultural aspects of the school or establishment project, the residences of which may constitute a strong axis;

The choice of the school or school of establishment of the residence, in the territory of the Academy of Strasbourg, will be made by the Gip-Acmisa, in connection with the inspection bodies, and communicated to the artists selected sufficiently early to allow the co-creationConstruction of the educational project with the teaching team.

- the residence is part of the artistic and cultural education of the students and shines on a territory ;
- the residence is implemented in a progressive and concerted manner ;
- the residence gives rise to a collective restitution, which will spread over the entire school and educational community ;
- the residence is piloted and evaluated.
