The Chair Organization and Territories of Arts, Culture and Creation (OTACC) organizes the Cultural Days 2023 on "The Art of inclusion: the new cultural revolution", on May 10, 11 and 12 at 6MIC in Aix-en-Provence.

The Journées Culturelles is an annual event, led by the OTACC Chair and realized by the students of the Master in Management and Law of Cultural Organizations and Events. Through conferences, participative workshops and narrative immersions, students question issues related to inclusion in the creative cultural industries. These days are part of the OTACC Chair's participatory, open and inclusive science program.

Access to the Cultural Days is free, upon registration (via the online form).

  • 13H30-15H00 | Workshop : France, land of welcome and artistic encounters ?

    To question the way in which the links between the artist and his national territory are articulated, and more specifically the figure of the foreign artist, and his inclusion on the French territory. From this general topic, three different themes arise:

    • The deference of public and non-governmental actors to the inclusion of foreign artists
    • The practice of foreign artists
    • Cultural appropriation

  • 15H30-17H00 | Workshop: Ecological will versus economic reality

    In the current environmental context, which is deteriorating, and the known fragility of the cultural sector, we can ask ourselves what the future of culture will be between the will to participate in the ecological effort and the reality of the budgetary costs for its implementation. What future for cultural events in an environmental context that is deteriorating, torn between the ecological will and the economic reality of the sector?

  • 10H30-12H00 | Workshop: Prevention of risks related to the use of licit and illicit substances in the festive cultural environment

    The use of drugs and psychoactive substances in the festive cultural environment concerns both the public and the professionals of the sector. It poses a problem in the registers of public health, inherent dangers which can result from it and generate a strong insecurity. This is why our workshop has the ambition to question the use of these substances in the festive cultural environment, to grasp all the harmful dimension and to sensitize the public to the dangers which are attached to it.

  • 13H30-15H00 | Workshop: Culture in rural areas: from the idea of a "French cultural desert" to cultural innovation laboratories

    Far from the "cultural desert" that we imagine, the multiplicity and diversity of actors and actions present in rural areas offer an impression of abundance; a dynamism that should not hide a certain form of fragility requiring a better pooling of financial, material and human resources. How have rural areas become laboratories of cultural innovation? How can culture be promoted in rural areas? How to better combine culture and rurality?

  • 10H30-12H00 | Workshop: Choosing a Character: Andy Cap

    According to the WHO, "a person is disabled if his or her physical or mental integrity is impaired, so that his or her autonomy, ability to attend school or to hold a job are compromised". We started from the idea that video games are very accessible and inclusive today, and that they also allow people to integrate socially. Our problem is: how to make video games accessible for people with disabilities (physical or mental) and how it can be an actor of accessibility?

  • 13H30-15H00 | Workshop: What place for the hearing and visually impaired spectators of the performing arts?

    Surtitling, LSF, audiodescription, amplified vibratory field... These terms have become familiar in organizations' communication. However, this was not always the case. Visually and hearing impaired audiences have long been excluded from culture, and more particularly from live performances. What measures have been put in place to include them? What are the challenges and difficulties encountered? Thanks to an exchange with professionals of the sector and people with disabilities, we will try to answer these questions and we will think together about new ways to include them.

    Speakers :

    Eugénie Carpinteiro, Live performance enthusiast, visually impaired - Association Valentin Hauy

    Lara David, Communication Officer - Accès culture

    Julie Moreira-Miguel, Public Relations Officer - Festival de Marseille

  • 15H30-17H00 | Workshop : The use of art as a means of expression for young people far from cultural services

    This round table gives the floor to cultural structures setting up actions with young people far from cultural services. The latter will be able to transmit their feelings about these devices on video. Whether these young people are physically locked up, in prison or hospitalized, or socially in priority neighborhoods, we will discuss cultural actions that can alleviate social difficulties and allow for the development of personal fulfillment.
