A cine-club of district dynamic animated by passionate people in the Second district, the reopening of a puppet theater in the parc Monceau, concerts of classical music between noon and two where you can bring your sandwich, festivals BD in the Swamp… offers unique cultural and free of the twenty town halls of Paris are legion. They draw the map of a cultural capital without rest, far from the commonplaces, and escapes instead to the ideas received.

The Sixteenth age? The Ve hyperactive? The Thirteenth in full development? When we survey on the ground, the reality is quite different. To paraphrase the expression of Orwell, “all the Parisians are equal culturally, but some are more equal than others in their district”.

Almost entirely funded by the city of Paris, these twenty administrative sectors retain some independence. The envelope, derived from the endowment fund of local animation received each year varies according to the number of inhabitants. Between associations, parties, lectures, concerts, and festivals, all do not give the same funding to the cultural offer. They must also cope with the local infrastructure, private and public (Opera Garnier, Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Théâtre du Palais-Royal, etc).

Initiatives

If some districts rely in large part to these flagship locations to ensure their influence, others are full of original initiatives.

A dive in the heart of the”snail” in paris allowed us to discover that some neighbourhoods forget their “senior” to flood the youth workshops in all genres. Others struggle to provide offers that may apply to all age groups. While most focus on the preservation of the classical music, it is found that the electro and hip-hop are often relegated to a summer program. Welcome, all the same, the global will of the boroughs that offer regular cycles of conferences and exhibitions – more or less attractive – in the walls of city hall.

At the center of the attention of the city councils, we find first of all the idea of bringing the culture of the inhabitants by the gratuity or the ease of access to events. As well, several districts offer a “pass culture” with a reduced price and premium offers for the local institutions: museums, theatres, concerts…

in Short, strong traditions, community life and energetic people are less willing-oriented culture, some inequalities for themselves according to neighborhoods. Why? Follow the guide…
