Observatoire des politiques culturelles has posted a reminder about a short training session on “Amateur artistic and cultural practices in local development” to be held in Périgueux, France, on February 3, 2010.
“Amateur artistic and cultural practices are very much in vogue. This is no doubt a sign of a society increasingly on the lookout for ways to achieve personal fulfillment, something that has been made possible notably by an increase in free time,” states Observatoire des politiques culturelles. “It is also symptomatic of a certain success in attempts to democratize culture, the result of work undertaken by various popular education associations to transmit culture, artistic teaching structures, and growing use of digital and multimedia technologies.”
