Fostering equality and young people involvement through cultural activities

Social inclusion is an important objective of youth policy and youth work in the domain of creativity and culture (see: revised 2016 Youth Law).

The cultural centre 'Kulturfabrik' has launched a pedagogical charter (Charte pédagogique) defining the target group of cultural activities for young people. This group includes students with educational difficulties, the disadvantaged population and people with disabilities. The centre intends to play a proactive role in the transmission of skills and cultural knowledge and to become a bridge between the socio-educational world and that of professionals of the cultural sector. The offer is cofinanced by the ministry of Education, Children and Youth.

Combating discrimination and poverty through cultural activities

There are many activities to combat discrimination and poverty through cultural activities, for instance, the workshop of cultures (Les Ateliers des cultures), which is organised by the Third World Solidarity Initiative (ASTM; Action Solidarité Tiers Monde). The project is organised in collaboration with secondary schools with the aim to sensitise young people for difficult situations by deconstructing prejudices and fostering mutual understanding and tolerance.
