The structures receiving support from the Ministry of Culture are required, from 2022, to commit to the fight against gender and sexual violence and harassment (GBV) and to respect their obligations.

Presentation of the device

What is the plan to combat HSV?

The Ministry of Culture makes the payment of its financial aid conditional on the fulfilment of the commitments made by the recipients of grants in the fight against HSV (sexual and gender-based violence and harassment). This conditionality of aid is part of the HSV control plan proposed by the Ministry of Culture for the performing and visual arts sector.

The fight against sexual and gender-based violence has been consolidated by the law of 3 August 2018, known as "Schiappa law". In particular, it strengthens the criminal law governing HSV and the resulting convictions.

Any person or structure applying for a Ministry of Culture grant must now:

  • describe the measures it has taken to comply with its legal obligations to prevent and act against HSV
  • commit to the implementation of HSV prevention and treatment measures specified in the Ministry of Culture’s HSV control plan
