What is Arts and Cultural Education (EAC)?

Arts and Cultural Education (EAC) is an art education and an art education. It is a coherent journey that combines the attendance of works, the encounter with artists and cultural professionals, the acquisition of knowledge and artistic practice. By contributing to the development of creativity and critical thinking among children and youth, arts and cultural education allows them to give meaning to their experiences and to better understand the world. The generalization of the EAC implies the mobilization of all the territorial, ministerial, artistic, cultural, associative actors, to develop actions closer to the territories.

Qu'est-ce que le label 100% EAC ?

Logo Label 100 pour cent EAC

The 100% EAC label values a commitment, a partnership approach and a strategy to achieve the generalization of arts and cultural education in the territory. The label is awarded by the Prefect of the Region and the Rector of the Academy for a renewable period of five years, after the advice of the decentralized services (Rector and Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs), which can mobilize other experts. The High Council for Arts and Cultural Education (HCEAC), meeting in plenary on 17 December 2021 in the presence of ministers in charge of culture and national education, officially launched the process of labeling “100% EAC” for local authorities and municipalities.
