The Arts and Cultural Citizenship Initiative is launching a Bass Connection

Prof. Anne-Gaëlle Saliot and Emmanuel Hondré  from the Philharmonie de Paris

Arts and Cultural Citizenship is spearheaded by Prof. Anne-Gaëlle Saliot and aims to understand the crucial role of arts in weaving a more inclusive social fabric on both sides of the Atlantic. Through customized internships, performances, collaborative projects and research programs, the Initiative is exploring the ways in which art theory, practice, and administration shape notions of belonging and negotiation of cultural spaces and challenge the idea of "citizen" as being a singular and monolingual subject.  The Initiative has just been awarded a Bass Connection grant for a new project to be conducted in 2020-21 in both Durham and Paris. More information here:
