Jacques Martial: La Villette: Culture and Urban Territory Fri 10/25/13
Jacques Martial will give a public lecture about the links between culture and place entitled La Villette: Culture and Urban Territory . Martial will talk about the plan he pitched - and is now carrying out - as President of the Parc de la Villette in Paris, one of the best funded cultural institutions in France. While in the past local residents, many of whom are from North Africa, used the park for family leisure and play, very few entered the major cultural facilities which are integral to the park. Jacques Martial came into the Parc with an express policy for inclusion, both for those local residents and the arts and artists from France d'Outres-Mers: he will tell us how this is playing out and about his plans for the next five years. This is a FREE event; however, registration is required to attend. To register, visit http://gsumartiallecture.eventbrite.com/ For more information, visit http://arts.gsu.edu/16165.html
