The recovery is everywhere and yet it is not for everyone ! After weeks of confinement, our hormones and our taste buds are in turmoil, but our brains are at the stops. We déconfinons a little, then alot, our schools, our restaurants, our businesses. We déconfinons also passionnement, the madness, the public debates agitated, the controversies, the more crazy of the news, accompanied by our processions many of the protesters ! All and all, we thirst for freedom, equality, and fraternity, and we affranchissons by the gesture of all the barriers. Without débâillonner our entertainers, our artists and our musicians…
Yes, yes, smile. I speak of those, discrete, anonymous, funny, or serious and to live with passion, our cultures, our museums, our theaters, our operas, our galleries, our libraries, our shows, our music venues, our festivals, as many places of emotions, of sharing, of laughter, of tears, of life and it is true, of microbes and bacteria also. And it is not necessary to drape himself in the imaginary invalid to set agree !
In fact, after more than three months of nights polar, our steppes French cultural administered by a technostructure to the cold north, are beginning to accommodate some limited thinning. An ounce of hope now permitted by a thaw of the health concerns described by leading experts as a deadly for cultural and creative activities in their entirety. Since a few hours, the sun rises slowly in the clear-obscure. So what to do ? Reaffirm simply the place that is unique, fragile and sensitive of the culture and creative industries-often craft – in our society. They are needed, they are important, they are vital.
Behind the scenes first and then in full light very quickly, the President of the Republic, Emmanuel MACRON sought to be reassuring with our thousands of intermittents prevented, recalling that they are the heart beat of the women and men of our great and beautiful country cultural. A pledge of his love for the free thinkers, the master-designers, the pretty things, the good word, the genius, symphony, theatre, the spirit of conquest… What does it cost ? Hopefully. For our large and small children and for ourselves ? Yes definitely. Have the daring for others, for themselves and a little for himself.
So do we face the reality and assume ! Because in addition to tastes and colors, we know the culture and all of its ambassadors are in need of our state power, the courage of the political, of the love of the public, to live everywhere, all of the exceptions, French cultural.
