Let’s experience diversity! Elan Interculturel is an association created in 2008 under the 1901 law with a motto : to experience diversity. To take an intercultural impulse – “élan” in french – is to allow oneself to see the differences, without fixating them. It’s about being able to enjoy them, without forcing them. It is about taking the time to train oneself to manage uncertainty, otherness and change. It means taking responsibility by making visible and fighting against inequalities linked to differences in our society. The artistic mediation center invites us to explore the intersections between art and diversity: how art illustrates both what unites and differentiates people from different cultures, but also how engagement in artistic creativity stimulates our ability to meet the stranger within or outside ourselves.
