Culture is highly addictive, you can continue
The Culture Patch is a device which aims to develop and diversify the cultural practices of the university community of Avignon.

Indeed, in our university, culture is thought of as a place of gathering: it must not encourage corporatism by distinguishing between students, teacher-researchers and administrators. On the other hand, it is not just a matter of consolidating the cultural practices of those who already have them.
The average student's culture budget is five euros per month. And this average tells us very clearly that, for many, the budget is zero, where some, few, will put in ten or twenty euros. The aim of the Culture Patch is to work for those who already have a budget, but also for those who don't yet have one: to discover what is unknown, because we think that, for the most part, there is no rejection of culture, but rather an autonomous appointment that can be built over time.
As the historian Paul Veyne points out, when you don't see what you don't see, you don't even know you 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 and exhibitions and the university provide for a basic fee of five euros once a year per member of the university community.

This year, several structures have committed themselves to the implementation of a permanent 5€ rate for holders of the Culture Patch, find them in your agenda guide.

Feeding the future.

For the past two years, hotel and restaurant owners have joined forces with the Patch Culture to offer special services to the university community (Le Petit Chaudron, Chez Françoise).
Goddog, creator of the 2019 and 2020 totebag

Each year, as soon as your Culture Patch is validated, you will be offered an object which will mark the identity of the University of Avignon and encourage a sense of belonging.

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