L'Observatoire, la revue des politiques culturelles
Observatoire des politiques culturelles, no. 40, Summer 2012
The latest issue of L'Observatoire, la revue des politiques culturelles de Grenoble, no.40/Summer 2012, includes a Dossier, coordinated by Marie-Christine Bordeaux i Fancoise Liot, on issues of the participation of inhabitants in the artistic and cultural life. Some twenty renowned authors discuss various ways of participation, which develop be it through amateur practices, through digital practices, more or less participative modes of creation or contributions to cultural debates. The inhabitant is both user, i.e. potential public, and citizen, who will engage in all dimensions of the local cultural life. How does the field of culture make use of this change of paradigm?
The Dossier explores the question of artistic and cultural participation in the field of live shows through concrete experiences, in the field of participative museums, as well as in the fields of scientific and technical culture, or through experiences of community understanding.
