Within the framework of the policy relating to the development of arts and cultural education in school led by the rectors of the three academies of Ile-de-France and the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC), optional or specialty arts courses are delivered in high schools. They are built in partnership with a cultural structure. Each year, an amendment to the agreement signed between a school and a cultural structure is sent to the DRAC. This amendment applies for a grant to the DRAC Ile-de-France for the year 2022/2023.

Presentation of the device

The Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs of Ile-de-France (DRAC IDF) aims to integrate the development of specialty and optional artistic teachings into a policy of territorial and cultural equity, in partnership with the rectors of Paris, Créteil and Versailles.

This shared responsibility translates into the joint validation of the teaching map (dance, theatre-dramatic expression, audiovisual cinema, circus arts), the presence of a qualified cultural reference structure, the arts education project and its follow-up.

The partnership between the secondary school and the cultural structure of reference is the subject of a triennial agreement on artistic teaching, validated by the school’s board of directors. Each year, an amendment to the convention, drafted by the cultural structure and the institution, is sent to the DRAC and corresponds to a grant application.
