National meeting for the artistic and cultural awakening of the little ones on November 4, 2022 at the Center Pompidou [COMPLET]

A meeting organized jointly by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Solidarity, Autonomy and People with Disabilities

The relationship with symbolism and sensible experience, the awakening to creativity, the discovery of culture as a space for exchange with others, for knowing oneself and the world, as an expressive modality and vector of social bond, represent essential game for the future of our company.

The artistic and cultural awakening satisfies the primary needs of children (cognitive, emotional, psychological and expressive through language) and helps to insert them into a culture that itself conditions the development and well-being of the child and, beyond that, that of every adult person.

In order for young children and adults to build their tastes, their choices together – at their own pace – to discover and appropriate their own culture, they need time and spaces that are conducive to movement, discovery, experience, creation and all ‘match.

A theme: the places and spaces of artistic and cultural awakening in everyday life.

How to break down spaces and times so that culture is not reserved for dedicated places and times?

How to rethink the places of early childhood and parenthood, cultural places and intermediate places to offer a favorable environment for the daily encounter with works and artists?
