De l’Art et D’autre is a new society providing services in cultural and art mediation. It offers a wide range of workshops and trainings relying on interaction with art works.

In its portfolio, it holds in situ workshops in museums in order to teach French language through visits and analysing art works, develop soft skills in socially disadvantaged groups, provide team development for enterprises where a focus is placed on team spirit, and provide an experience of completely new encounters with colleagues and oneself.

De l’Art et D’autre has developed a methodology which combines museum pedagogy, art history, conversation analysis and intercultural studies. This combination of competencies allows to realise an individualised follow-up adapted to the needs of a heterogeneous audience. Our approach is also based on the constant evaluation of our methods and facilitators through the systematic video analysis of each workshop.

We participate in this project to share the pleasure of discovering works of arts with persons from different cultures and backgrounds and experiance a new understanding emerging from these interactions. We also want to test innovative methodologies articulating foreign language and literacy learning with cultural mediation. By organizing this type of events we hope to provide participants linguistic and cultural tools allowing them to better integrate and participate in the European community.
