Call for projects «Territorial artistic and cultural residency in school» invites artists and cultural professionals to imagine and implement an arts and cultural education project in close partnership with the educational teams of schools, for the benefit of all students. It is proposed and subsidized by the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs of Île-de-France.
Presentation of the device
What is the territorial artistic and cultural residence?
The territorial artistic and cultural residence in a school environment aims to:
- participate in the development of arts and cultural education
- build a collaboration between professionals in the arts and culture, educational teams and a large number of classes
- deepening partnerships in one territory, complementing other existing arrangements
The purpose of the residence is to be open and to have an impact on a territory. It can therefore concern several schools. In this case, a pilot institution must be appointed to facilitate the network of associated schools and ensure the establishment and operation of a joint monitoring committee. A residence can thus help to federate the relations between schools, colleges and lycées of the same territory.
More generally, the action of the residence can reflect that of a diversity of actors of the territory (recreation centres, youth and cultural centres, neighbourhood houses, social centres, associations, medical and social centres, youth protection units, hospitals, retirement homes, etc.). The residence must bring together a significant number of pupils and a multidisciplinary team of teachers within each school concerned.
Objectives of the approach
The objectives of the territorial artistic and cultural residence in a school setting are to:
- help reduce inequalities in access to art and culture
- allow as many people as possible to understand the creative process, whether it is related to contemporary creation, heritage or scientific culture, or school programs
- open to another worldview and develop the student’s critical mind
- to provide a unifying arts and cultural education for children, youth and their families
- contribute to the artistic and cultural development of the territory (heritage, public reading, museums, cinema, theatre, dance, music and choral practice, etc.) by integrating the project into a local (communal, intercommunal, etc.) and participatory dynamic (public, schools, municipal and associative structures), while mobilising the educational community

C R A F T is a contemporary creation, an immersive and participatory video-dance project, which aims to create videos around choreographic creations, through different workshops of artistic practices (choreography, dance, video, etc.).
Students go to discover rare craft trades in professional high schools and training centres, “collect” the gestures inherent to these trades, translate them into choreographies, and then make videos from these choreographies.
This project is carried out in partnership with the Pompidou Centre.
« Nos lendemains qui chantent » par PIVO (Pôle itinérant en Val-d’Oise) - 95 - (résidence territoriale en ruralité) – 11 000 € - Académie de Versailles
Imagine a group of young people left to their own devices in the absence of any adult. What would be their discussions about the state of our world, what would they want to change? How would they want to imagine their future? Alone or in a group, they could replay conflicts, struggles, dreams, fantasies, whether they are of extreme beauty or cruelty, wonder about their desires, their utopias, and denounce through their ideals the bellicose antagonisms that tear our contemporary societies apart.
We would like to organize a State General of Utopias with students to invite them to think about what their ideal society would be, and in doing so, question their ability to provide a response to the mistakes of its elders. We will ask ourselves whether the utopias carried by the new generations are motivated by a construction or a deconstruction of our society... and what a project of utopias combining writing, theatre, visual arts, digital arts, they will create during this residency.
