BURSARIES in "Art, philosophy and communities"

These bursaries are aimed at students who propose a social and innovative project in the arts and in philosophy.

This is an opportunity to open up a space for dialogue, sharing, and co-creation. The students will be asked to reflect, explore, experiment, and to lead successfully a project for interaction with the citizens.
