A PROPOS DU TRAVAIL
on worktalk Talks & Workshops Social/Urban Movements
The École des Actes, residing in Aubervilliers, proposes a fundamental right to work for people in motion. Their program encompasses language training, legal counsel, and topical emphasis, like the one on the Paris Commune. This cultural-activist project is less about the mediation of content but rather about the means to develop and articulate issues of people coming to Europe.The École will guest with four participants during the concluding weekend of Place Internationale. More will have their say via video contributions, and they also carry with them excerpts from a soon-to-be published book. During one excursion, performative interventions with artistically designed placards and an open workshop talk, we will also enter into a conversation on questions of self-organisation and the situation in France following April’s presidential elections in April.
At Ècole Des Actes everyone is a „participant“, a „learner“. There is a great diversity of knowledge that, in dialogue, allows thinking and finding new ideas. The Ècole Des Actes is composed of men, women and children: young unaccompanied minors, workers and migrants mainly from Africa (Mali, Ivory Coast, Mauritania, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Congo, Guinea, Algeria, Chad) and Asia (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan), activists, artists, school dropouts, children from the district of Fort d’Aubervilliers.
PLACE INTERNATIONALE is supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
