Culture is a lever for social cohesion, sustainable development and the attractiveness of territories. In the run-up to the Mayors' Fair, which takes place from 22 to 24 November, the Ministry of Culture has chosen to present this year a number of measures for the development of territorial cultural policies.

In the context of a language policy anchored in the territories, the FFPB proposes two operations at living room :

  • On 23/11 from 17:00 to 17:30, the mobile language laboratory LISTEN-SPEAK will be presented by General Delegate Paul de Sinety and Olivier Baude, scientific manager of the project. Born of a desire to establish a close dialogue with our fellow citizens, this laboratory has a vocation to travel the territories, in order to make discover the French spoken and the languages of France. This participatory and interactive system allows us to create a sounding portrait of our country and its regions.
  • 24/11 at 11.45, the language pacts will be presented by Claire Extramiana, advisor to the delegate for territorial action. These pacts make it possible to better articulate language projects to the specificities of a territory and to strengthen cooperation between State and local authorities. Through them, social cohesion is taken into account (fight against illiteracy, mastery of French and cultural action), the promotion of cultural and linguistic diversity (reception of the Francophonie in France, regional languages), innovation and language technologies.

Meet the DGLFLF on the stand of the Ministry of Culture at the Salon des maires, Porte de Versailles, in Pavilion 2.3 – A21.
