Panorama Project supports the National Art School Crisis and the staff, students and teachers mobilized to defend art education in France. We are aware of the crucial stakes involved in saving art schools.
We salute the unfailing commitment of all those involved in the mobilisation who, overcoming the difficulties encountered, have been able to come together to defend a common cause. We are convinced that this struggle will not be in vain, and that the combined efforts of each and every one of us will make it possible to make the demands and proposals put forward by the entire protesting body heard.
Together, we can contribute to preserving and creating a quality education for future generations, so that they can in turn express their creativity and artistic sensibility.
We, therefore, call on all authorities belonging to the management of the schools to listen to the demands of the mobilised staff, students and teachers, and to take the necessary measures to guarantee the durability, development and improvement of the conditions of life and creation of the art schools in France, of which they are the representatives and responsible.
This address also concerns all representatives and actors of power having a significant impact on these events, namely Rima Abdul-Malak (Minister of Culture) and Pap Ndiaye (Minister of National Education and Youth).
