Study day

Mediation and cultural rights

28.06.23 — 10:00

CN D Pantin

Cultural rights, as they are delineated in the 2007 Fribourg declaration, are the cornerstone of mediation practices, such as taking into account multiple identities, valorizing different types of knowledge, involving people, taking part in the education and training of citizens and future citizens… Through debating and sharing experiences and initiatives implemented in different European countries, we will try to understand how mediation practices mobilize and challenge cultural rights and how cultural rights question and shift the intentions and actions of mediators and artists. What can dance do in terms of cultural rights? How do cultural rights specifically engage with dance?
