The selection will be made according to various criteria such as the relevance and originality of the project, suitability with the targeted theme or the technical and financial feasibility of the project.
The projects must be innovative in nature, allowing children and young people to discover the themes and challenges of the artistic and cultural world. They can be held partly “extra muros”, but must in large part allow participants to discover places of creation (artist’s studio, auditorium, museum, etc.). The projects should focus more on collaboration, exchange and transmission of know-how than on the preparation of a final product, even if this can be part of the project (show, exhibition, etc.).
The funded educational projects can be implemented:
- either in the context of creations/works in the process of being developed or planned,
- or around existing or old creations/works, whose pedagogical potential deserves, according to the project leader, to be harnessed today in a precise context;
In all cases, the educational project must be linked to a specific creation/work.
Projects with a high potential for long-term impact will be given priority.
