DEADLINE : 11th November 2013
The 20th annual meeting of the Banlieues d’Europe network will take place in Munich (Germany), 20 - 22 November 2013, in partnership with the Münchner Trichter network. The issue of non formal artistic and cultural education will be at the heart of these three days of debates, framed around a European forum of artistic and cultural projects, plenary sessions, simultaneous workshops and field visits in Munich.
"(...)In a Europe in crisis, damaged by mass unemployment of young people, school dropout is a terrible personal stigma and an enormous social waste. In French disadvantaged neighbourhoods, more than half of an age group leaves the school system without a diploma. We witness the emergence of a "No Future generation". From this bitter analyse is born the idea to associate art and culture to struggle against school and social exclusion. From this terrible analyse is born the idea to show that art and culture are ideal means to motivate, mobilise and train people who feel undervalued and rejected by society.
All the projects under the spotlight of Munich Meetings will prove that another educational world is possible and that less formal approaches, more creative, open up new educational perspectives (...)".

Colloquy: European Law and Cultural Policies - 15 November 2013, Brussels
European Law is acquiring a growing hold on culture, but the attitude of the European Union concerning cultural policies remains ambivalent.
This Colloquy, to be held in Brussels on 15-16 November 2013, aims to clarify the relationship between European Law and cultural policies, starting from four problematic areas. The first problematic concerns the import of the “absolute cultural competences” of the European Union, in particular with regard to the objective of constructing a cultural identity, or the protection and promotion of national cultural policies. The second problematic concerns taking cultural considerations, in a general manner, into account in the right to European integration, negative and positive. The third problematic is that of the evaluation of the effects of the meeting between European law and culture, from a legal point of view. The last part of the Colloquy will tackle the evaluations of these effects from a political science point of view, in particular with regard to national cultural policies.
The enrolment form and the detailed programme are available here.
Exhibition: @HOME CONNEXION, an Immersion Into the Digital Worlds of Mermoz - 31 October 2013, Lyon 8th arrondissement
At a time when education, culture and digital essentially conjugate, the Exhibition @HOME is the outcome of a participative artistic creation demarche, which implicated nearly 200 inhabitants of the Mermoz neighbourhood in Lyon. The result of exchange between children, adolescents, adults and a team of six artists, anthropologists and other participants, you are invited to discover a “scientific laboratory”, imagined collectively.
According to the archives, in 2011 this “laboratory” conceived a social network so powerful that it inspired the local inhabitants and turned their lives upside down in a parallel universe.
The exhibition invites you to immerse yourself in the milieu of creations that give shape to the representations of this “virtual world” through digital media. From the form of the plan until its construction, and the emergence of ideas until their realization, each pixel of this space has been thought out and built collectively, in order to give shape to something that could be called “an imaginary of digital”.
The private showing this exhibition will take place at 5 pm on 31 October in the Salle Genton (Lyon 8th arrondissement).

Exhibition: Glances in Images 2013 - 7 November 2013, Lyon and surroundings
Glances in Images is the desire to create bridges between cultures, through photographs, words and writing, and to go over and beyond divides. It is an artistic journey into the heart of cultural practices, composed with people from different countries: France, Russia, England, Poland, Romania, Georgia, Armenia, Algeria, RDC Congo, Burundi, Angola, Tunisia, Morocco, Turkey, Portugal, Pakistan, Brazil, Chechen...
By photographing an object or setting up a scene, each person shows what they like to do, to talk a little about his or her story and question links between cultures. The posters realized, linking photographs to text, show that from one country to another cultural practices can meet up.
The exhibition Glances in Images 2013 will take place from 4 to 15 November 2013 at Saint Genis Laval (Maison de Quartier de Collonges) and from 18 November to 6 December 2013 at Villeurbanne (at ARTAG).

Event: 10th edition of the Black on White Programme - 7-9 November 2013, Lyon
black on white is a programme that has for the last ten years brought together three teams of artists from Sétif, Lyon and Algiers. Ten years of artistic creations and development shared between France and Algeria will be honoured at the AmphiOpéra of Lyon from 7 to 9 November 2013, echoing the Sens Interdits Festival.
This 10th edition will look at the process of theatrical and musical writing, disciplines that figure amongst the foundations of inspiration of this programme: the discovery of resolutely contemporary authors and publishing, passing by setting up in space, public readings, slam writing, staging, musical creation, etc.
Further information and detailed programme on the Gertrude II website.
Cinébanlieue Festival: 13-23 November 2013, Paris and Saint-Denis
The 8th edition of the Cinébanlieue Festival will be held in Paris and Saint-Denis from 13-23 November 2013. Created in 2006 out of the observation that there did not exist any large demonstrations devoted to neighbourhoods under the angle of their social, cultural and economic riches, this Festival aims to prove that the representation of neighbourhoods and their inhabitants does not reduce itself to that which the media show us, and offers another vision of what is a neighbourhood. It principally concerns showing this space as being a venue for artistic inspiration and fulfilment, and not as a source of tension and destruction.

Concerts: Algerian Rap Between Two shores - 20-23 November 2013, Lyon and Vénissieux
Since 2008, AFARA, (France-Algeria Rhône-Alpes Association), CARA (Circle of Algerians and Franco-Algerians in Rhône-Alpes), CIMADE, Coup de Soleil en Rhône-Alpes and the Maison des Passages have been exploring ways of meeting up between France and Algeria through a cycle of pluridisciplinary manifestations (conferences, theatre, music, film shows, stories...)
The 2013 programme entitled “Algeria of Today” aims to interrogate contemporary relationships between the two countries at political, social and artistic levels by presenting meetings/debates, a film show and a series of concerts centred on Rap and Algerian youth.
These concerts, taking place between 20 and 23 November 2013, will provide an occasion to discover the universe of six MCs who keep alive the Algerian rap scene (and in a wider sense, Mediterranean), and to listen to these voices who rise up against the balance of domination and resistance that exists on both sides of the Mediterranean.

Theatre: Illumination(s) - on tour all over France
A young man is beset with astonishing visions; the past and the present get mixed up and his dreams get mixed up with reality.
Illumination(s) is a choral recitative, written and directed by Ahmed Madani, where nine young people from Val Fourré, a working-class neighbourhood in Maintes-les-Jolie, invite us to go to the other side of the mirror. We follow their story over three generations in a tourbillon of singing, dancing, and funny and moving scenes. As the author and director, Ahmed Madani, says: “It is with the real experts of my youth, young people themselves, that I chose to make this journey to the country of sensitive areas and my memory” - of our memory.

Call for Candidatures: French-German Cultural Fund 2014
Instituted in 2003 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Treaty of the Elysée, the French-German Cultural Fund illustrates the willingness of France and Germany to reinforce their cultural cooperation, but also, and above all, to make visible their commitment in favour of European integration. The objective of this Fund is to highlight cooperation between the two countries by encouraging French-German cultural cooperation initiatives in third party countries. For the last ten years, this Fund for aid to cultural initiatives has shown the success of the capacity of France and Germany to mobilize common projects in the entire world, through their diplomatic representatives (Cultural Institutes and Cultural Services) of embassies in situ, in close cooperation with local interlocutors and actors.
Propositions for the year 2014 should be sent before 31 October 2013.

Call for Participation: Artist’s Residency WALLS - Separate Worlds
WALLS - Separate Worlds is an international cooperation initiative supported by the Culture Programme 2007-2013 of the European Union. Carried by the Eufonia-Astàgali Theatre, Italy, it regroups eight partner institutions from Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey and France in a reflection centred on the (central) questions of walls in our societies, as much a concrete presence as symbolic. A paradigm of the separation of worlds, walls lead to misunderstanding, even ignorance, of the other person and to turning in on oneself.
It is the role of culture to rise above these walls and to construct multicultural, open European identities.
WALLS - Separate Worlds aims to join together theatrical and sociological research in the framework of an Artist’s Residency, to take place in Zakynthos, Greece, from 28 November to 5 December 2013. It will continue in February 2014 in Bagnolet (France), in May in Lecce (Italy) and in June in Nicosia (Cyprus).

Association QUARTIER, Bremen (Germany)
QUARTIER collaborates with actors in the cultural sphere to set up non-formal educational artistic projects in the centre of the life of inhabitants of “working-class” neighbourhoods. Children, adolescents and adults from different milieux are encouraged to participate together in artistic and cultural activities. The results of these collective initiatives (theatre, exhibitions, fashion parades, etc.) are consequently presented to the public.
The projects developed by the QUARTIER association are a means of creating a link between people from very diverse socio-cultural backgrounds, all with a desire to make their town live. New forms of expression and diffusion are regularly experimented on, to enable a larger and larger participation, always very important to these projects.
The raison d’être of QUARTIER is to give a chance to the inhabitants of different neighbourhoods in Bremen to re-appropriate and re-create their environment. To achieve this, the association tries to organize meetings with artists, the discovery of learning artistic techniques, and the setting up of venues that enable the discovery of hidden talents...
The work of the QUARTIER association has already been welcomed and taken up by different German associations.
