Mediation in contemporary art centres
This brochure is the result of collaborative working for several months with mediators from various art centres in the network. It was published in 2019 by DCA to highlight the specific nature of the mediation work carried out for the public in contemporary art centres.
This brochure was produced as an institutional communication tool for partners and professionals in the field, to explain the dimension of mediation in art centres and to highlight the power and the integration of these professions within the structures.
Charter of good practices for contemporary art centres
Adopted in 2019, the charter of good practices engages each contemporary art centre member of the DCA network to work towards the creation, production and dissemination of the visual arts by respecting a general framework that involves:
— professional support and minimum remuneration for artists;
— respect for an ethic of care and recognition of the specific nature of the professions;
— the role of contemporary art centres in the development of artistic and cultural education and cultural rights;
— respect for diversity;
— the environmental responsibility of contemporary art centres;
— inclusion in the dynamics of cooperation.
CACIN label: decrees, orders, circulars

Ministerial Circular of 9th March 2011
Drawn up jointly by the French Ministry of Culture and the DCA network, the ministerial circular of 9th March 2011 on the agreement of art centres constitutes the first framework document for these structures.
It clarifies the criteria for recognition of these venues by the State and its intervention methods within the framework of its policy to support creation throughout the country.
It reasserts the founding objectives of art centres dedicated to the research, production, and dissemination of works by contemporary artists and their communication to all audiences.
