As an integral part of the artistic creation sector, the Department of Visual Arts is responsible for implementing in Normandy the state support for the creation and artistic diffusion in the field of the plastic arts.
The plastic arts department contributes to the definition and implementation of the State policy in terms of developing the visibility of contemporary creation in Normandy. Its mission is to support the creation, production and dissemination of contemporary creation in all its forms: painting, volume, photography, installation, video but also design, fashion and new technologies.
In this sense, it accompanies the structures of creation and dissemination. It also promotes the development of associations engaged in actions related to the promotion and mediation of contemporary art.
The visual arts sector is also the main contact point for artists and contemporary art professionals regarding their integration and their professional, fiscal and social situation. In this, it implements in particular the support mechanisms: individual assistance to the creation, facilitating the realization of a creative project, and installation allocation, meeting the material needs of artists.
It coordinates the procedures related to public commissions and 1% artistic, thus participating in the planning of the territory and the requalification of urban and rural spaces. It accompanies the operation of higher education institutions under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and ensures their pedagogical monitoring.
The two plastic arts advisors of DRAC Normandie are divided as follows:
The Rouen-based advisor is in charge of supporting artists (regional commissions AIC, AIA), monitoring their professional careers, national calls for projects, festivals and the structuring of the photography network in Normandy, as well as digital creation.
