  • Objectives

    The AIC course of the DPEC Master's degree is in line with the skills delivered in the field of cultural management by the current Administration of Cultural Institutions course, a training course in place since 1988 with the active support of the City of Arles. It provides a mastery of the fundamental concepts and tools in this field, in cultural economics but also in the transversal disciplines - cultural law, digital, cultural policies, sociology of art, history of art, modern languages - which are the specificity of this typical course. It is therefore in line with the current dynamics of the cultural professions requiring an innovative administrator profile, "the cultural producer", capable of managing and controlling complex projects within cultural institutions in their different configurations both in France and internationally: public or private cultural institutions, local authorities, cultural industries, associative structures.

    At the end of the course, graduates will have acquired the following skills:

    • Administering and evaluating the implementation of a project and/or a cultural facility, in its managerial, budgetary, economic, legal and logistical aspects.
    • Conceive innovative cultural projects adapted to the challenges of the contemporary world.
    • Deciphering the cultural organisation, its actors and its environment.
    • Communicate and market a cultural project or structure.

Cécile, in Master 2 Management of cultural projects or establishments, course Administration of cultural institutions (AIC) at the FEG on the campus of Arles. I'm going to present you my training. Before starting my training, I did a degree in history, then I did a civic service in a cultural affairs department of a city and then I entered the Master's degree in History in the Cultural Project Management course at La Rochelle. I came to this Master's degree from the FEG, because I wanted to do my second year of the Master's degree as a sandwich course and the FEG allowed me to do so. Today I am doing my work-study at the department of Seine-et-Marne, in the cultural affairs department. We are organising a festival - it's very good because I am applying everything I learn in the framework of our training. For example, as part of our training, we had courses in intellectual property law, management, accounting, in management, in accounting. These are things that I hadn't seen at all, because my background was more in literature and the humanities, and today I use them every day! For example, we had courses in digital communication, to manage the festival's website, which is very useful, and also in terms of budgets, to know how to read an estimate and establish a budget for a project! Afterwards, I hope to graduate in September, after defending my thesis and continue working in public administration, because that's what I like. As I have been well trained at the FEG, I hope to graduate in September 2021
