EMLYON Business School / Ecole centrale de Lyon - I.D.E.A. Art in the Community 2013

Le programme  MSc in I.D.E.A. (Innovation, Design, Entrepreneuriat et Arts) a été lancé en septembre 2012, fruit de l’Alliance entre l’Ecole centrale de Lyon et EMLYON Business School, et reconnu par le label IDEFI pour son caractère innovant. Sa mission est de former une sélection de titulaires de licence à la création d’activité innovante, création de valeur et création d’emplois. Les principes qui guident son développement sont simples : diversité des profils, transdisciplinarité, pédagogie expérientielle et travail coopératif. Cette formation attache donc beaucoup d’importance à la culture générale et aux processus créatifs. C’est la raison pour laquelle elle développe un enseignement artistique spécifique : dessin, graphisme, modélisme, théâtre, arts martiaux, rencontres avec des artistes, visites d'exposition, conférences, participation à des foires, etc. La Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso soutient le volet "Art" du MSc in I.D.E.A.

Musée Mobile, a project from L'Art à l'enfance (Art for Children) Art in the Community 2013

L'Art à l'enfance is an endowment fund whose purpose is to support the cause of children and help initiate and ground them in the arts and culture. MuMo – short for Musée Mobile, or Mobile Museum – is a truck-drawn container that can be converted into a museum. It is designed to bring art directly to children aged 6 to 12in France and other countries. MuMo gives them their first taste of contemporary art in the shape of works specially created by 13 major international artists like Daniel Buren, Claude Lévêque and Maurizio Cattelan. Some artists actually turn up at different places where MuMo stops. They talk about their work or take part in workshops. To determine where to stop, MuMo has worked with UNESCO school networks, poverty prevention voluntary group ATD Quart-Monde, local government, education authorities, and schools. Children are given art education sheets to prepare them for MuMo’s visits. Some visits are rounded off with the intervention of an artist or a workshop organized by a consultant. The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation is a partner of the MuMo’s 2013 tour.

Education nationale – Direction de l’enseignement scolaire (National Education System – Department of Primary Schools) Art in the Community 2012

Introduced in 2002, the Charters for the Development of the Voice and Choir-Singing have been deployed in over 80 départements across France. The scheme seeks to bring together at the local département level all partners able to contribute to the development of singing in primary schools. Within that framework, the Central Department of Primary Schools, together with the National Centre of Teaching Documentation, calls for projects that involve pupils singing and/or teacher training (training the voice, conducting choirs, studying the right repertoire). To extend the scope of the scheme, the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation is matching the National Education System’s contribution to the fund for supporting these voice-related projects.

Enfance et Culture (Childhood and Culture) Art in the Community 2012

The crucial role that the practice of the arts plays in children’s development is today acknowledged. However, it still does not benefit from all the attention it deserves. Artistic practices help develop children’s sensibilities and the way they personally see the world around them. It is to that end that the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation, together with the Fondation de France, co‑funds projects that use the arts and artistic practice to increase the receptivity of 6 to 16-year-olds to the world around them.

Necker Children’s Hospital Art in the Community 2012

The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation provides two-fold support to the hospital. First, it is funding the restoration of the monumental fresco painted in 1987 by American artist Keith Haring on the outside of the fire exit of a building in the Paris hospital. The size and originality of the fresco make it unique. Haring painted only ten or so murals during his short life and very few outdoor works. The work is to be restored as part of the project to restructure the hospital’s architecture and open it up to the city. It will become the totem of the revitalized hospital. The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation is also funding the hospital’s promotion of its arts and culture policy among patients, their families, and personnel.

Nouveaux Commanditaires / The New Patrons Art in the Community 2012

The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation is funding the scheme for a three-year period – 2012 to 2014. It has already funded:

  • A work by Mathieu Lehanneurin the Diaconesses Croix Saint Simon Hospital in Paris
  • A work by Laurent Pernotin Saint-Malo Hospital on the northern coast of France
  • A work by Matali Crassetat the Le Blé en Herbe School in Brittany in north-west France

Paris Mozart Orchestra Art in the Community 2012

The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation funds the Paris Mozart Orchestra (PMO), conducted by Claire Gibault who drew on her experience working with Italian conductor Claudio Abbadoin Bologna. The PMO nurses a twin ambition. First, to bring music to young people who have little chance to attend concerts and may not even know what a concert is. In this way, the PMO hopes to contribute to the fight against failure and inequality at school, to reveal excellent young musicians, and to put in place a modus operandi that rejuvenates musical institutions and emphasis certain values. The Foundation has committed to the PMO for 3 years (2012-2014).

Fabrique Opéra Art in the Community 2011

The Fabrique Opéra (Opera Factory) was born in the French alpine city of Grenoble. The project is designed to introduce young people to the opera by rewarding their skills and involving them in an arts-related project. It harnesses the energy of pupils from high schools and vocational establishments to the staging of an opera and draws on their talents – e.g. in designing costumes, stage sets, make-up and hair-styles as well as in management, publicity and the use of new media. It is also a chance to bring together very different people (amateur and professional musicians, teachers, pupils, apprentices, school staff, technicians, instructors, etc.). And it is a way of proving that the diversity of people and skills is an irreplaceable asset. The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation is funding the replication of the scheme in three new cities in France.
