Aid for artists
The DAC of La Réunion accompanies plastic artists in order to promote creation. As such, it allocates two types of aid: on the one hand, individual creative assistance to finance a research or creative project and, on the other hand, the installation or purchase allowance for equipment intended to finance a project of structural equipment for the exercise of artistic activity; and/or carrying out work in the workshop.

The Public Order
The public order is the manifestation of a willingness to involve the State and multiple partners (local authorities, public institutions or private partners), to contribute to the enrichment of the living environment and the development of the national heritage, by the presence of works of art outside the only institutions specialized in the field of contemporary art. Public commissions therefore refer both to an object - art which, leaving its reserved spaces, seeks to meet the public in its living and public spaces - and to a procedure. The public commission involves a wide variety of plastic expressions and artistic disciplines: sculpture, design, crafts, new media, photography, graphic design, landscape, light, video, etc. Read also/ Decree of 24 August 2016
