Ministers Françoise Nyssen, Jean-Michel Blanquer, and Frédérique Vidal met on 4 July 2017 at the Ministry of Higher Education, of Research and Innovation to mobilize their executives and show their common commitment to a strong presence of arts and culture at all levels of education, from kindergarten to PhD. The Rectors and Regional Directors of Cultural Affairs were thus able to testify, thanks to concrete examples, of their commitment and their desire to strengthen all actions in favour of arts and cultural education.

The three ministers recalled the commitment of the President of the Republic to give 100% of children access to arts and cultural education.

Together, they affirmed their willingness to pay special attention to music with the initiative «Back to music», to promote the importance of books and reading in the field of learning and to better integrate art and culture in the training of future teachers. In order to continue this mobilization, they will gather on July 20 the High Council of Arts and Cultural Education and, on a regular basis, the rectors and regional directors of Cultural Affairs.

All agreed on the importance of the pleasure of learning to create a school of trust.
