SciencesPo Reims and the ESAD of Reims are joining forces to develop a multidisciplinary educational programme combining artistic creation and the humanities and social sciences. Fifteen workshops facilitated by African creators (music, dance, video, plastic arts and design), in partnership with teachers from both schools, will address the political, artistic and cultural dimensions of a project. The various workshops, intended for 300 students from both schools, will be set up as part of Semaine folle (“Crazy Week”s), a joint annual programme. The objective will be the cross-fertilisation of skills between African professionals and French teachers, between artistic creation and a conceptual approach. The workshops will be presented every evening and will end with a full day of public presentations :
