Promoting access to art and heritage for disadvantaged children
The Foundation Culturespaces
By promoting access to the arts and heritage, the Culturespaces Foundation has been combatting (since 2009) the cultural exclusion from which certain children have suffered: those who are unwell, handicapped, or made vulnerable by poverty or social exclusion.
Thanks to made-to-measure projects that provide active, entertaining, and suitable learning for the children in question, the Culturespaces Foundation has enabled them to discover historical and artistic treasures, and has helped them to reconstruct their lives through cultural activities.
The Foundation brings together culture, education, and solidarity. This unique capacity, combined with a high level of excellence, make the Culturespaces Foundation a leading organisation in France in terms of access to the arts and culture for children suffering from social exclusion.
- 16 000 children benefit from the scheme each year
- 560 workshops and visits each year
- 970 visits
- More than 500 social partners and educational bodies
- 75% of the children visit a cultural site for the first time
