François Lajuzan: New approaches to cultural mediation

In his presentation, François Lajuzan focusses on the return of the notion of artistic and cultural mediation in public policies, according to new approaches and new practices. From the ‘non-public’ theory to the multicultural approach, the different ideas on the subject are confronted with reality and must take into account certain major aspects in the evolution of our societies, such as citizen participation, the emergence of digital, and others. According to his observation that mediation, “we talk about it a lot but we do not do much at all”, F. Lajuzan illustrates his offer with many concrete examples from his experience in Tournefeuille and Toulouse.
