18.00-19.30 Debate: “Sport and Culture: an impossible marriage?” organised by the Agency for Education through Sport as part of the initiative of the City of Saint-Denis.
In the presence of French athletes and artistes, and with youth testimonies, the debate will be a meeting with those who have bridged the gap between sport and culture. Changing the opinion that culture is reserved for the elite and that sport is for the working class, gateways between sport and culture are now possible thanks to the new integrated practices. Nowadays there are new ways to explore and appropriate public spaces through new practices that address the city as a playing field.
