The Bastia Corsica 2028 adventure must contain a promise: that of bringing art and culture into the daily lives of the inhabitants of the city of Bastia and the island.
While artistic and cultural practices are very widely shared, oscillating indifferently between scholarly and popular cultures, this integrating function of art and culture must become even more acute during the Bastia-Corsica 2028 bid.
Inventing agile modes of action to achieve an ideal of sharing and emancipation through art and culture for each of the inhabitants, such are the ambitions of this application.
This dimension of "Taking (one's) share" is a key element of the matrix that unites the partners in the bid. It will have to be embodied across the board in the programmes to be implemented by responding to a certain number of issues:
How can the diversity of sensitivities and aspirations of the island's population be better taken into account?
How to engage citizens and what place should be given to participatory mechanisms?
What place for artistic and cultural education and popular education?
How can we reach different generations with very different cultural backgrounds?
How can the younger generation contribute to the enrichment of the application?
