In 2012, the DRAC allocated €20,873 to Culture-Handicap actions, supporting several associations: the association «Ciné-Sourd» aims to promote and spread the deaf culture through events (mime, theatre...) within its café theatre. ; the Cafégem association offers meetings around artistic events in favour of disabled audiences; The Association for the Assistance of Brain Handicapped Persons organizes awareness-raising workshops and theatrical practices for adolescents and young adults with disabilities.
The DRAC seeks to identify any pilot initiatives in this area.
Cultural Saturdays offer once a month days open to people with disabilities and so-called ordinary people. At the Rouen conservatory, workshops on artistic practices are led by video creators, musicians, actors...
In 2012, the DRAC subsidized several associations, notably those acting for the diversity of audiences. The «company of spinning tops» has organized multidisciplinary artistic meetings between disabled and disabled people, supported by the DRAC (3000€). The MESH association (music and disability) is supported (€6,000) for its mixed music workshops in rural areas.
The DRAC has supported many artistic and cultural practices that integrate people with disabilities. She continues to support in Montpellier the association «au singulier et au pluriel» for choreographic creation in sign language in connection with the Fabre museum for an amount of €6,500. Access to the cultural offer for people with mental disabilities was also supported through a €3,000 grant for the association ALAPLATJA (a leisure organization adapted for people with mental disabilities). The DRAC has also supported the association «Arts-Résonances» and its project «La poésie fait vous signe», a laboratory for research and creation on LSF poetry. Through the Bulle Bleue, a training project for people with disabilities in the performing arts is being developed.
In 2012, the DRAC supported the Faugeras Project of the Bottom Theatre (€3,000) with credits from the call for practical amateur projects. These are theatre workshops for people with mental disabilities, as part of a theatrical creation (writing of a text by a present author) that will be broadcast on stages of the territory and beyond if possible.
In 2012, the DRAC granted €11,800 to various associations. For example, the association «Vu d'un oeuf» organises workshops for artistic expression (1800€) including the dance with the show «Fourteen hours minus ten» for disabled people. The «Autrement dire» association received €5,000 in assistance for the organisation of theatre workshops with mixed participants. Performances are performed by able-bodied artists and artists with disabilities.
In 2013, the DRAC has an increased envelope: 20K€ support a film festival «deaf-film», the training of choir conductors of disabled people, theatre workshops for some 130 actors with disabilities, a current music project with a class of deaf youth, the reception of disabled people in the museums of the natural park of the Vosges du Nord, writing workshops and awareness of musical instruments.
Beyond these financial aids and the longstanding concern of museums and media centres for the reception of these «specific» audiences, many operators develop actions aimed at disabled audiences or set up special schemes such as Le Vent des Forêts or the FRAC in the field of plastic arts, the National Opera of Lorraine, the Bussang theatre (mentally handicapped) or the National Orchestra of Lorraine to mention only them in the field of live performance.
In 2011, the DRAC supported a specific action carried out by the Association des Rencontres Cinémas d'Amérique Latine de Toulouse (ARCALT) in the centre of Ramonville-Saint-Agne. This action aims to raise awareness among school children with disabilities about Latin American cinematography: CAV practice workshops, participation in the festival... Since this support a dynamic between the association and the center of Ramonville continues. Regarding cultural action, the centre circassion «La Grainerie» receives €5,000 for its work with people with disabilities. The festival «Tous en signe» is also financially supported (€7,000) for its year-round activities for the deaf public and artists.
The museums of Poitou-Charentes work with the association Valentin Haüy de La Rochelle the computer network, for the realization of audiodescriptions of virtual exhibitions put online on the site www.alienor.org.
There is also a work conducted by the Bougon museum with the blind and visually impaired for a temporary exhibition putting the public in a situation of blind.
The DRAC is heavily invested in supporting artistic structures working with people with disabilities. In 2012, it financed 33 actions on its specific line culture and disability for a total of €140,000 (excluding the culture and hospital programme).
7.1.3 Mobilising local actors around incentive schemes
The Regional Tourism Committee has been a partner for 4 years and a document has been produced that publishes the Tourism and Disability-certified places.
Communities are active in this field:
- Mulhouse initiated an agenda 22 process;
- Strasbourg has just signed Act II of the Ville-Handicap Charter.A guide to the cultural accessibility of the City and the Urban Community of Strasbourg is being updated. A reference person has just been appointed within the City’s Culture Directorate and a first meeting has already taken place at the DRAC.
The link with the Departmental Houses of Disabled Persons (MDPH) is only initiated by a first meeting that must be the subject of a more formal meeting involving the two departments. It should concern the accessibility of communication tools.
The DRAC, together with the Regional Directorate of Tourism (DRT), carried out awareness-raising work in 2009 and 2010 with museums on the one hand, and cultural facilities for live entertainment on the other. This scheme is an incentive for structures.
The DRAC encourages the labeling «Tourism and disability» within the framework of the annual call for projects. Between 2005 and 2012, seven museums were labeled, the last is the Departmental Museum of Prehistory of Solutré (labeled for the four handicaps). Similarly, in 2012, this museum was awarded the «Heritage for all, heritage for each» prize and the special mention of the jury with an award of €10,000.
A Disability Tourism Label has been set up in 14 places of visit in the Centre region:
- Museum of Resistance and Deportation, Lorris
- Ecomuseum, Ligny-le-Ribault
- Musée de la Marine de Loire, Châteauneuf-sur-Loire
- Fairground Theatre Museum, Artenay
- Arboretum National des Barres, Arbofolia, Nogent-sur-Vernisson
- Château de Saint Brisson sur Loire
- Museum of glass and its crafts, Dordives
- Groslot Hotel, Orléans
- Municipal Museum of Prehistory and History, Châtillon-sur-Loire
- Museum of Fine Arts, Orléans
- Lyon Gallery, Orléans
- Circus and Illusion Museum, Dampierre-en-Burly
- Saint Sauveur Museum, Nibelle
- Museum of Forest Trades and Legends, Loury
The DRAC participates in the Regional Committee for Tourism and Disability in connection with the services of the DIRECCTE. . All the sectoral advisers relay this label to cultural structures. The DRAC also monitored the process of making the Palais du Tau de Reims accessible, the latter having won the «Heritage for all, heritage for everyone» award in September 2012.
The Contract-territory-reading signed in June 2013 with the City of Reims expressly provides for support for actions in favour of disabled people: animations in sign language, projections in audiodescription for mal-seers, workshops on Braille and sign language, which have earned the Jean Falala Media Library the label “Tourism and Disability” (for audiences with hearing, mental and motor disabilities).
The DRAC collaborates with the Normandy Coordination of Disability (CHN) commissioned by the regional tourism delegation for the award of the «Tourism - Disability» label. The «Culture - Handicap» exchange days promote knowledge of this label and its methods of award.
The DRAC promotes the appropriation of heritage by specific audiences (first Portes du Temps project in Haute-Normandie in 2012, heritage education projects for children with disabilities...).
In 2012, the DRAC supported various institutions that participated in the “Heritage for all, heritage for everyone” award, including the Maison Victor Hugo, which has been involved for several years in accessibility actions for people with disabilities. Since 2005, the Val-de-Marne museums have been the subject of an ongoing and methodical action plan in this area: in 2012, the General Council wanted to emphasize the creation of a multi-sensory briefcase (Nemours Prehistory Museum).
Since the signing of the Culture/Disability Convention between the DRAC and the ARS, the creation of a regional Culture/Disability Commission involving the Regional Tourism Committee is being considered. When requested, the DRAC accompanies cultural institutions that are committed to obtaining the «Tourism and Disability» label. The reflection conducted with the CRHM to further support heritage institutions is ongoing. Exchanges with the MDPH point to future partnerships. The exchange with the region in the field of the fight against discrimination should lead to a partnership DRAC/ARS and region around the Festival Art des Sens carried by the region.
The DRAC participates in the meetings of the regional committee Tourism and Handicap. Nine museums in Lorraine have been awarded the «Tourisme et Handicap» label, including the Musée des Beaux-arts de Nancy. In 2009, he received the “Museums for All” award. In 2012, the Mirecourt Museum was awarded the «Heritage for all, heritage for each» prize of €20,000.
The DRAC participates in regional pre-labelling committees for the «Tourism and Disability» label. It works directly with the Mission d'Ingénierie Touristique Rhône-Alpes (MITRA) which is particularly qualified on the issue of accessibility to the built environment and the cultural offer and has very effective information and communication tools.
A constant work with the departmental committees of tourism (CDTH) exists in this region: help and advice on accessibility and work for obtaining the labels.
Each year, work is carried out to present applications eligible for the “Heritage for all, heritage for everyone” prize.
7.1.4 Dissemination to persons with disabilities of information on the availability of accessible artistic and cultural practices
The resource centres
Identified partner: ESAT «L'Évasion» located in Sélestat, administratively attached to the Association de Parents d'enfants inadaptés or «APEI Centre-Alsace».
The artistic quality of the creations and that of the invited artists for the supervision of the projects has allowed the support of the DRAC since 2006.
The DRAC accompanies the "Evasion" project on three types of actions:
- training for disabled workers;
- the functioning of the cultural exchange space;
- the «Charivari» festival, the first of which was held in 2009.
Support for the emergence of resource centres on culture and disability is also expressed through the support of thematic associations in different artistic disciplines whose objective is the development and enhancement of musical and choreographic practice, such as Mission Voix Alsace, ADIAM 67 and the choreographic development centre «Pôle Sud» in Strasbourg.
In February 2011, the DRAC supported the creation of the Pôle de compétence Culture et Santé en Aquitaine. The latter performs the functions of resource centre. This centre plays an advisory and engineering role. It organises professional training courses combining staff from health institutions and cultural stakeholders. The Pole is a cooperative society of collective interest (SCIC) which has among its 94 members medical-social establishments hosting people with disabilities. (site: culture-sante-aquitaine.com).
The DRAC co-funded with the Gironde General Council in 2009 and 2010 the online development of a website (accessible RG2A) dedicated to the accessibility of cultural practices and institutions. Site: cultureaccessible.gironde.fr
The association «Itinéraires Singuliers» has been commissioned by the DRAC to become a resource center concerning the accessibility to the culture of people with disabilities. The DRAC finances numerous activities of the association (€25,000 in 2012): artistic practices, visual art/show programming, trainings, networking.
The Ciné-Sourd de Reims association is considered a resource centre by the DRAC. The latter plays an important role as head of the network for other structures in the disability sector. The dynamism of this structure and its commitment to the disabled make it a privileged interlocutor of the DRAC.
The DRAC supports the GIHP in setting up a network and developing training. It also supports the development of an Arteoz digital resources project currently being created, which aims to promote access to accessible cultural opportunities for disadvantaged audiences (including those with disabilities).
For the past two years, the DRAC has been supporting the association «Union pour tous les talents» which has created a website «Pôle ressources hors limites» with the mission of centralizing and promoting information on cultural accessibility for people with disabilities. The site is expected to be published in 2013/2014. In addition, departmental or interdepartmental groups on the issue of information dissemination should be formed in 2014. The association «Union pour tous les talents» mobilizes the departmental houses of persons with disabilities (MDPH) around the website project «Hors limites». Future dialogue bodies will position the MDPH as privileged interlocutors. The Esat la Bulle Bleue plays a role as a departmental or even regional resource centre in the area of access to professional training in the field of live entertainment.
The association «Les Singuliers Associés» currently plays the role of resource centre in terms of accessibility to works of performance for people with sensory disabilities. This association is known to professionals and is sought for its advice and expertise. The association is a theatre company that has been working with actors with disabilities for several years, running theatre workshops for amateurs with disabilities (theatre workshops in the dark, etc.).
INECC, the European choral institute, is a member of the music and disability network.
The DRAC supports the association «Au comptoir des pièces détachées», which works on the recognition of artists with disabilities and the networking of projects. It disseminates information on artistic and cultural activities accessible to people with disabilities in the region. This association is the privileged resource center of the DRAC. As such, the association received a grant of €15,000 in 2013.
At the conference of December 3, 2013, a partnership reflection -City, Region, DRAC- was committed to the implementation of a resource center that could include the following axes:
- organization and presentation of legislative resources (culture and disability);
- a platform for communication and interactivity between the different actors;
- awareness of the world of disability in the cultural sector;
- the establishment of specialized training courses in university cultural sectors (e.g. opening of a specialized “Cultural Mediation” branch);
- the establishment of field studies around this issue.
The DRAC works with the association of mediators in Angoulême and with the museums of Rochefort.
The DRAC is very attentive to professional artistic teams working with people with disabilities. It also supports resource poles such as that of “Contemporary Resonance” in Ain.
Links to MDPH on communication of accessible cultural offers
It should be noted the beginning of a partnership between the DRAC and the Maison départementale des personnes handicapées (MDPH) du Calvados, for the development of a culture sheet for the Calvados guide for people with disabilities. The publication is scheduled for early 2013.
The link with the Departmental Houses of Persons with Disabilities (MDPH) is provided by the association «Les Singuliers Associés». They were involved in setting up the “All Directions” operation.
The Departmental House of Disabled Persons (MDPH) serves as a relay between the DRAC and the Departmental Committees of Tourism (CDT).
Accessibility of communication tools for cultural facilities
The awareness of cultural professionals on the communication aspects of accessibility was carried out in a non-systematic way as part of the annual interviews with the cultural development advisor. A more continuous campaign in relation to the other advisers and project managers was conducted in 2013.
The «Arteoz» project, accompanied by the DRAC, aims to promote the communication of cultural facilities to specific audiences.
The DRAC supports the Centre de ressources théâtre et handicap (CRTH) which has proposed the accessibility of the external and internal information tools of the contractual structures via its resources tools (adaptation in Braille or large character, vocalization...). Its website meets European accessibility standards and is an information relay.
The specifications of the association «Les Singuliers Associés» require to meet all the directors of performing structures of the regional territory, in order to select with them in their programming the shows accessible to the sensory handicapped. The association «Les Singuliers Associés» is thus developing specific brochures for people with disabilities. It also creates an accessible website and makes the operation known to people with disabilities in the territory and the associations that accompany them. Structural managers are assisted in drawing up their documentation (indication of the various pictograms). The association organizes mediation operations for people with disabilities. The objective is that in the long term, the seasonal brochures of the structures will all be accessible and that the booking services will put in place a procedure adapted to disabled people. The «Singularers Associés» are currently working with the managers on the topic of practical booking arrangements.
The DRAC disseminates to cultural operators the guides «Culture et Handicap» published by the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
Training days were set up in 2013 by artistic fields with the association «Au comptoir des pièces détachées», in conjunction with the sector advisors. The DRAC museum advisor is involved in the creation of a network of museum mediators. This network aims to promote accessibility to the cultural offer, complementary to accessibility to the built environment.
A computer network of museums in Poitou-Charentes puts shared resources online.
7.2 Actions developed by the Directorates-General of the Ministry of Culture and Communication
7.2.1 General Delegation for the French language and the languages of France
For the General Delegation for the French Language and the Languages of France, the access and contribution of deaf people to culture and artistic practices is a priority area of intervention, which necessarily involves the recognition and use of sign language. This is the line of strength that the Minister of Culture and Communication strongly supported on November 27, 2012, on the occasion of the tercentenary of the birth of Abbé de l'Épée, paying tribute to the artists and mediators who make the French sign language (LSF) alive. and through it take part in global cultural development. Sign language is a language of France, which does not have to be thought under the category of disability, but as a language in its own right, in its semiotic originality that stimulates reflection.
The Observatory of Linguistic Practices established at the General Delegation includes in its scientific council a specialist in LSF, which makes it possible to better integrate this dimension in sociolinguistic research work. In 2004, the Observatory published one of the first issues of its newsletter Languages and Cities sign language.
A reflection is underway with CNRS researchers on the possibility of translating into LSF the summaries of some DGLFLF publications already available online. In addition, a thematic project to build a corpus of LSF in video should enrich the site Corpus of the word, which is one of the main lines of work of the Observatory of Linguistic Practices (more than 800 hours of audio recordings in some forty languages of France). The latter program integrates the search for ways to facilitate deaf access to the site.
TheInternational Visual Theatre illustrates the specificity of dramatic creation when it chooses the LSF as a vector. The Minister decided that the theatre’s interpretation costs would be covered in full by her services, DGLFLF and DRAC Île-de-France (40,000 euro each), in order to break with the traditional practice of relying solely on sign language users to ensure communication with their interlocutors.
The Beast to God Production has received support of 6,000 euros to continue its work of dramatic creation, translation and adaptation in LSF of literary works, for deaf and hearing audiences.
The association Arts-Resonances introduced the LSF to the Sète Poetry Festival and collaborates with a research group. These cross-activities have the double advantage of acclimatizing the LSF to the cultural scene and arousing the interest of the deaf for the written word. They received €3,000 in support.
Among the programs promoting bilingualism and access to common knowledge for the deaf, DGLFLF supports several programs of the Lille association Signs of meaning: Elix, French-LSF online dictionary, developed in a collaborative way and a training project for young journalists in LSF survey techniques (€10,000).
A €15,000 grant was awarded to the festival Wink, which for ten years has made Reims a capital of culture by bringing together artists from all disciplines and countries of Europe around the world. It is a field of technical innovation and experimentation to broaden the access of all to artistic productions.
In another way, because it is a generalist, the Douarnenez Film Festival contributes to making known the deaf identity through its component Deaf world, both in terms of practical accessibility and creative potential (€5,000).
7.2.2 Directorate-General for Heritage, the “Heritage Award for All” 2013 edition
As part of the policy of cultural democratization led by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the “Heritage for All” award rewards a process of excellence in general accessibility for people with motor disabilities, visual, auditory or mental. Endowed with an amount of €50,000, it awards museums, monuments, archives and other heritage sites for their achievements in compliance with the handicapped standards of the built environment, innovation linked to an approach of access and use for all, of mediation promoting the autonomy of individuals and the diversity of audiences in the cultural offer.
On September 5, Vincent Berjot, Director General of Heritage, presided over the jury of the ministerial delegate for accessibility Marie Prost-Coletta, members of major disability associations and representatives of the various MCC departments.
For this 3rd edition of the «Heritage Prize for All», the winners are as follows: (attention, review dashes, points etc because not clear)

La Corderie Royale. Centre International de la Mer in Rochefort (Poitou-Charentes)
This cultural meeting centre is dedicated to the dissemination of maritime culture. For several years, he has been committed to a very proactive policy of widespread accessibility and has designed a series of cultural offerings adapted to each disability. The involvement of representative associations of people with disabilities, local elected officials and other tourism and heritage professionals was crucial in the success of this approach and the implementation of good practices. The website has been redesigned to meet digital accessibility standards and offers free downloading of visit aids. A presence on online social networks is a key element of the communication policy towards people with disabilities.
Open Air Museum of Comtoise Houses in Nancray (Franche-Comté)
This atypical museum exhibits, on fifteen hectares, traditional rural Comtoise architecture through more than thirty buildings and kiosks. A working group with representatives of departmental associations of persons with disabilities has made it possible to improve the external path and to adapt mediation for each disability. High definition virtual tours are available for free on tablets and the internet. An educational garden has been created. Awareness-raising and training actions on disability are regularly offered to all staff. Finally, this establishment has recruited several disabled workers and is developing many integration projects.
Toulouse-Lautrec Museum in Albi (Midi-Pyrénées)
A 10-year project has brought this historic monument and its museum spaces into compliance with the new accessibility standards of the built environment. Since 2009, close collaboration with local disability associations has been undertaken regarding the design of the cultural offer for each disability, especially deaf audiences. A dozen speakers (visual artists, actors, musicians) trained in the specificities of each disability were recruited. In the summer, the museum offers all public visits to people with mental disabilities and their accompanying persons. Activities «outside the walls» and visits to the museum are designed for the public of the third and fourth ages through a convention with retirement homes of the region.
National Museum of Music at the Cité de la Musique (Paris)
Since its opening, this museum has attached particular importance to welcoming people with disabilities. In addition to the accessibility of spaces for people with reduced mobility, a varied cultural offer is designed for people with disabilities, who come alone or in groups. The temporary exhibitions regularly offer adapted routes and the permanent exhibition offers images in relief, instruments to touch and audiodescription for the visually impaired. Children with disabilities can discover the collections in the company of able-bodied children thanks to tactile puzzles, sound games and multimedia terminals. A new and innovative «Touch the Music» course is now open to families.
Louvre Museum (Paris)
For more than 20 years, the Louvre Museum has been pursuing an accessibility policy that takes into account the diversity of its audiences. On the one hand, thanks to the work of the Grand Louvre where the palace has been given access to the built environment (elevators, elevators, inclined planes, escalators, adapted toilets, lighting, seats, etc.). On the other hand, with workshops, conference visits and many tools to help with self-guided visits adapted. In 2012, it welcomed 800 groups of people with disabilities, or 16,000 people. It ensures that persons with disabilities and their families have priority and no waiting at the museum and that persons with disabilities and their accompanying persons are free of charge. It has an agreement with the Fonds pour l'insertion des personnes handicapées dans la fonction publique.
7.2.3 Media and Cultural Industries Branch, Book and Reading Service (SLL)
Within the Directorate-General for Media and Cultural Industries, the Book and Reading Service (SLL) encourages access to books and reading for people prevented from reading because of a disability, under conditions comparable to those of other audiences.
This policy translates into support for libraries for the establishment of a reception policy for disabled people, actions to improve the dissemination of adapted works and implementation, since 2009, from the Exception handicap to copyright.
188.8.131.52 Support to libraries for the establishment of a reception policy for disabled people
The development of reading in France is largely due to the network of public reading libraries: municipal and departmental libraries, numbering about 16,000 spread over the entire territory, as well as archival libraries, university libraries, school documentation centres, prison libraries, hospital libraries, etc.
Support for library professionals is provided throughout the year, in liaison with the DRAC Book and Reading Advisors, in collaboration with the Handicaps Committee of the Association des Bibliothécaires de France and the members of the ALPHABib network1, led by the Handicap mission of the Public Information Library (BPI).
This work is expressed in particular through the organization and participation in study days, on topics as diverse as the reception of disabled people in library and the consideration of specificities, communication, the offer of services and collections, accessibility of the built environment and interior fittings, or accessibility of library catalogues and portals digital accessibility of libraries (study day 2010); Mental disability and libraries (study day 2011) ; Welcoming Deaf Audiences to Libraries (2012 Study Day), etc.
In parallel with these measures and work undertaken, the Book and Reading Service (SLL) has been pursuing for many years its policy of supporting adapted publishing for publishers and associations working for access to books and reading for people with disabilities, through subsidies. The SLL devotes nearly €100,000 per year to actions to develop reading, in conjunction with public reading libraries. These projects are distinguished because of the target audience and the innovation that characterizes their approach.
For example, in 2013, the SLL launched a call for experimental projects entitled “Action for reading”. Nine projects have been selected; four of them concern people with disabilities, for actions relating to the establishment of DAISY reading services in territorial libraries (Association Valentin Haüy), the organization of a seminar on youth adapted publishing (Benjamins média), the establishment of a simplified access to library catalogues (BrailleNet) or the collective creation of an experimental touch box (Les Doigts qui rêvent).
The SLL is also working to improve the dissemination of adapted works. For fifteen years, the Ministry of Culture and Communication has been offering the possibility to publishers of adapted books (books in Braille, relief, sound, sign language and digital) to present their actions and their latest productions to the general public and library professionals on a dedicated stand at the Paris Book Fair.
