Cultural Mediation.

Definition of cultural mediation
“At the junction of the cultural and the social, cultural mediation deploys intervention strategies – activities and projects – which promote, within the framework of artistic and heritage institutions, municipal services or community groups, the meeting of publics with a diversity of experiences. Between cultural democratization and cultural democracy, cultural mediation combines several objectives: giving access to and making culture accessible to the widest audiences, promoting the diversity of expressions and forms of creation, encouraging citizen participation, promoting the building of connections within communities, contributing to the personal development of individuals and the development of a sense of community. ”

Role of cultural mediation within Cultur’all
The role of the Kulturpass is mainly to lift the financial barrier in access to culture, but this solution, however interesting, is not enough on its own.
That is why Cultur’all also aims to raise awareness among citizens and political and social actors about the benefits of culture and the various barriers encountered by Kulturpass beneficiaries. Likewise, Cultur’all wants to break down the barriers that separate people from cultural creations, not only among its beneficiaries, but in the general population. Arts and culture still seem to be reserved for an elite, yet they surround us, shape our reality, and are a form of expression of the living. Culture is us.



Participatory methodology and educational tools

Since 2018, the association Cultur’all has developed a new lever to support socio-cultural mediation work that primarily targets Kulturpass partners. This work is done through meetings between different actors. During these meetings, participatory and creative working methods are used to encourage participants to express themselves and freely exchange ideas. Each new meeting with social partners gave rise to unexpected and playful discoveries, and to moments full of emotions. Through this approach, Cultur’all hopes to bring about a stronger commitment from the partners and generate a real multiplier effect for the project.

Cultur’all works at several levels:

Raising awareness of the benefits of culture and the various obstacles encountered by Kulturpass beneficiaries, and creating an interconnected and dynamic network of cultural and social partners.

The association tries to develop different approaches depending on the objective pursued.

The a.s.b.l. Cultur’all has set itself the following missions:

promote and facilitate – in particular through the Kulturpass ¬¬– access to all forms of culture for people who are remote from it, in particular those living in a difficult social and/or economic situation;
encourage the participation and contribution of all – in particular the most deprived and/or excluded people – in cultural life, not only as consumers, but also as actors;
promote cultural diversity as well as intersocial and intercultural dialogues;
