Concerts, shows, exhibitions, screenings… From April 2 to 4, 2019, higher education institutions and associated cultural venues will be at the party for the 6thth Edition of the Days of Art and Culture in Higher Education (JACES). This national operation, coordinated by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation with the support of the Ministry of Culture, aims to increase public awareness of higher education institutions, as places of life and culture.
Students at the heart of JACES
The JACES also highlights the cultural and artistic achievements of students and their higher education institutions. Whether they are artists or simply curious, each student will be able to invest in more than 500 events offered in the national program available online on the site www.jaces.fr.
As a first step, they can become involved as student artists, in events representative of the wide range of cultural and artistic activities offered throughout the year by their institutions (universities, schools or regional centres for university works (CROUS)), often built around topical themes.
Secondly, students will be able to promote these events as a «live-reporter» student. Their mission? Participate in events labeled #JACES2019, discover behind the scenes and meet artists to share their point of view, their emotions, their reactions on social networks. Three prizes will be awarded to the most committed and/or artistic publications: public prize, commitment prize, creativity prize. Entries for this contest are made on the site www.etudiant.gouv.fr.
The “Shake Shake Go” group closes
The closing atmosphere of the JACES will be pop and folk! As part of the festival «Les arts du campus», labeled #JACES2019, the University of Lyon is organizing a concert of the Franco-Welsh group «Shake Shake Go» at the Transbordeur (Lyon, Thursday, April 4). Known to the general public in 2015 with the title «English Skies», «Shake Shake Go» is back in 2018 with «Dinosaur». To accompany the group, the University of Lyon and the Transbordeur invite student groups and musicians to perform in the first part of the concert by answering the call for projects before March 10.
