The Policy of the City and Cultural Action

Pierre Mayol

Abstract


Abstract: Within the context of the Policy of the City and of Urban Social Development of the government of France, the paper discusses public cultural action (government involvement in cultural development), "emerging" cultures in housing projects and neighbourhoods that are supposedly "in trouble" (or, in other words, "sensitive" or "underprivileged"), and conflicts between community-based cultures and republican alternatives. In describing cultural conflict in urban situations, the paper refers to the situation in France. The article closes with a brief overview of certain developments in Europe. R
