The aim of the Culture and Social Link programme is to develop arts and cultural education activities aimed at the inhabitants of priority urban and rural neighbourhoods. It is set up by the Regional Directorate for Cultural Affairs (DRAC) of the region in which the project is carried out.

Presentation of the device

What is interdepartmental policy Culture and social link?

Through this policy, the DRAC (Regional Cultural Affairs Directorates) affirm a proactive policy towards cultural structures by accompanying, in close connection with the actors of the city’s politics, artistic and cultural projects for the inhabitants of the city’s political districts.

Project promoters are strongly advised to consult the DRAC/DAC departments as soon as the project has been designed and prior to any other approach, who can advise them.

Objectives of the approach

Artistic and cultural practices are powerful levers of personal emancipation and social cohesion. However, the obstacles to artistic practice and the use of cultural sites are numerous: geographical accessibility, financial means, mechanisms of social exclusion, etc.

This device is therefore intended to:

  • support artists, artistic teams, venues in the development of actions in priority territories
  • lift these brakes
  • and, by a long-term presence, allow the sustainability of the cultural practices of the inhabitants
