Workshop Cultural outreach
University of Paris
In the context of the teaching program “Ateliers Lettres pour l’oral et l’écrit” of the UFR Lettres, Arts, Cinéma, four students from the University of Paris imagined and organized an educational project and artistic workshops for the public of Crédac. The aim of this project is to train students to give tours and to carry out educational workshops as well as to allow for a unique experience between different audiences.
For this year 2020-2021, the students proposed visits and a series of workshops around the group exhibition La vie des tables (from September 20, 2020 to March 19, 2021) as well as for the exhibition Cima Cima by Kapwani Kiwanga (from April 27 to July 11, 2021). For the exhibition La vie des tables, a first group of students collaborated with the nursing home of the Château de la Fontaine aux Cossons in Vaugrigneuse to offer its residents a workshop based on pop-up postcard models. A second group imagined a school workshop based on a participative digital magazine for a class at the Paul Valéry high school in Thiais. These two formats, carried out at distance, allowed the public to discover the exhibition in an original and participative way during the period of confinement. For the exhibition Cima Cima, the two groups of students proposed workshops to elementary school students. The first group focused its proposal on the imaginary world of plants with the class of the Joliot-Curie A elementary school in Ivry-sur-Seine. The students of the second group also worked on the question of plants through a workshop proposing to the pupils of the elementary school of Côteaux de Saint-Cloud to make paper by including seeds to make germinate in the garden of their school.
This inclusive program centered on hands-on workshops took place throughout the school year, from the students’ discovery of the art center, to the realization of workshops and public performances with the students, including preparatory meetings and the evaluation of student projects in collaboration with their teacher.
