Executive director, ‘Culture & Diversité’ Foundation

Seminar Creation | Monday April 4, 2016 - 8h45 - 11h00

The ‘Culture & Diversité’ Foundation was created by Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière in 2006 with the belief that culture could have a role in making society more harmonious. Ten years later‚ the foundation has made culture accessible to more than twenty thousand young people, and has helped one thousand five hundred young people in their professional integration in the workplace. It has taken on a central role in equal opportunities for access to cultural and artistic training. This is a success story based on a resolutely modest and pragmatic approach. The Foundation limits itself to providing material support such as information‚ logistics‚ educational aid‚ help with accommodation, and so on. It also works closely with schools and institutions. Its aim is not to detect new geniuses who may be loitering at the bottom of a block of flats in a troublesome neighbourhood, but to lend individual support to young people who want to find a job. In a context where the causes it defends have become urgent and complex, can the painstaking work of the ‘Culture & Diversité’ Foundation still be a source of inspiration?
