Via the exchange and research project entitled "cARTable d'Europe" on art at school, the cities of Lyon and La Louvière look at the concept of testing in early childhood. At a time when testing is acknowledged to be necessary by some and decried by others, this European programme proposes feeding reflections from shared experiences. It should be possible to replicate these methods and they will truly integrate artistic and cultural education in the school career and life of children.

Lyon's involvement in the European project cARTable d'Europe

With the benefit of experience of cultural and school structures in the territory, the City of Lyon is seeking to develop and evaluate innovative educational practices by means of artistic education actions. Artist residencies in pre-elementary classes based on a philosophy of the artist / teacher partnership have thus been put in place.
