Culture is highly addictive, you can continue
The Patch Culture is a program which aims to develop and diversify the cultural practices of the university community of Avignon.
Indeed, in our university, culture is thought as a place of gathering: it should not favour corporatism by distinguishing students, teachers-researchers and administrators. On the other hand, it is not enough to consolidate the cultural practices of those who already have them.
The average cultural budget of a student is five euros per month. And this average tells us very clearly that, for many, the budget is zero, whereas some, few, will put in ten or twenty euros. The aim of the Patch Culture is to work for those who already have a budget, but also for those who do not yet have one: to discover what is unknown, because we believe that for the most part, there is no rejection of culture, but an autonomous appointment to be built over time.
As the historian Paul Veyne points out when we don't see what we don't see, we don't even know that we don't see it. It also seems important to us to encourage the exploration of the various facilities, structures and practices in the Avignon area. This is why the agreements signed between the cultural structures producing performances, shows, concerts, exhibitions and the university provide for a basic fee of five euros once a year and per member of the university community.
This year, several structures have committed themselves to setting up a permanent rate of €5 for holders of the Patch Culture, find them in your diary guide.

Feeding the future.
For the past two years, hotel and restaurant owners have joined forces with the Patch Culture to offer special deals for the university community (Le Petit Chaudron, Chez Françoise).

Goddog, creator of the 2019 and 2020 totebag

Each year, as soon as you validate your Patch Culture, you will be offered an object that will mark the identity of Avignon University and promote the feeling of belonging.

In 2019-2021, it is the artist Goddog who signs the totebag.
