PRESENTATION

Throughout Europe many artists have built up in the last twenty years a knowledge of activity and a praxis of their arts in a close dialogue with their audiences at school, in prisons, on the street, in suburbs, but also in milieus where communication has been distorted. Where sense of belonging disappeared, in a village, a region, a city quartier, they can establish new models of connectivity and raise curiosity and interest of intercultural groups to get together again.

Even if the social impact of their activities is widely recognised, there is still for the time being too little recognition on the political level to sustain the artists' actions. The crisis in public finances has been already evoked so often in the recent years to stop any venture into new cultural projects, and also to regress from the large involvement of regions and cities in cultural projects vs. social inclusion.

At European level, the programme lines "Culture 2007-2013" did pose some ground rules of cooperation and sharing of good practices for all concerned countries, and it is time now  at the mid-term of the period to reflect on the pertinence of the support and on the drafting of the new priorities in cultural involvement of the EU for 2014-2020.
