Courants du Monde programme and International Cultural University

International training and exchange programmes, initiated by the Ministry of Culture and Communications, organized and coordinated by the Maison des Cultures du Monde.

Courants du Monde 2006 (from 13 to 30 November 2006)

One hundred French-speaking cultural professionals from abroad will be invited, for 3 weeks, to meet their French counterparts during lectures, workshops, technical internships, visits and individual meetings (in Paris and around France). The option « Séjour Culture », which is an individual programme of meetings and visits in a specific field (fine arts, performing arts, cultural action, ...), is targeting managers of cultural institutions, atypical spaces that have been rehabilitated and converted into pluridisciplinary cultural spaces for creation and diffusion.
The Courants du Monde programme covers the costs of accomodation in Paris, possible programme related travel in France and a daily allowance.
