Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of Education and Youth, Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, have signed the Convention establishing a National Institute for Arts and Cultural Education (INSEAC), a major initiative to meet the ambition of the President of the Republic: allow 100% of students to benefit from a quality arts and cultural education course throughout their schooling.

Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of Education and Youth, Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, signed the agreement establishing a National Institute of Arts and Cultural Education (INSEAC) within the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (CNAM). The creation of INSEAC marks a major step in meeting the ambition of the President of the Republic: to allow 100% of students to benefit from a quality artistic and cultural education course throughout their schooling.

 Located in the heart of a territory strongly committed to the policy of Artistic and Cultural Education, INSEAC is the result of an ambitious partnership of the three ministries with the Regional Council of Brittany, the Departmental Council of the Côtes d'Armor, Guingamp-Paimpol Agglomeration and the city of Guingamp. 

 This new institute of higher education and research, integrated into the Cnam, will have the objective of structuring at national level training and research in the field of arts and cultural education. Through the production and dissemination of resources, INSEAC will aim to federate the actors around shared practices and objectives, This will help to create an environment conducive to the development and evaluation of this policy throughout the territory.

 The main mission of INSEAC will be to design and deliver a certificating initial and continuing training offer, in connection with higher education institutions under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and the National Institutes of Higher Education and Teaching (INSPE). These trainings will be aimed at students and professionals involved in developing or participating in arts and cultural education projects: students, teachers, artists, cultural mediators, socio-educational animators, local elected officials, etc.

 The signing of this partnership agreement opens an eighteen-month foreshadowing phase for the Institute, which will host its first promotion in September 2021.
