The ADK Pub is in danger, sign our petition!
Since 2006, our association, Arts de Kore, manages the activities of the Pub ADK, concert hall of Roissy-en-Brie characterized by an intense program of current music, resolutely turned in the direction of the accompaniment and promotion of local artists. Member and administrator of the Clip Ears network, ADK Pub has develop into over time an area cultural actor and regional essential. But whereas our association is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Pub ADK this quarter, we have now very critical considerations concerning the speedy future of this inventive and cultural venture. The petition is signable online, listed here are our explanations on this example.
Last June, the mayor of Roissy-en-Brie, François Bouchart, informed us during an appointment then by mail of his won’t to renew the conference linking the town and our affiliation. The latter, signed in February 2016, plans and organizes the supply of the Pub ADK premises till the top of this yr. The grounds invoked for this non-renewal? Work claimed for 6 years by our affiliation and may subsequently wait till subsequent summer time. To these is added the will to “think a new project” to “develop an activity more meeting the expectations of Roisséens”, including by way of the publication of a call for tasks. In fact, we have now by no means heard of any public studies or surveys carried out in Roissy, the 22,000 Roisséens have by no means expressed themselves on this subject. Though the actual motivations for all this escape us, it seems obvious to us that the municipal majority merely does not need more of a cultural venture like ours in its city.
A deep misunderstanding of the ADK Pub challenge
Since being elected in 2014, the new municipal majority has been sending worrying alerts for our structure and our tasks: a gentle decline in the municipal subsidy (over 30% much less since 2014), a conference from three years to at least one yr only … We’ve got long thought that these decisions resulted from a lack of understanding of our associative, inventive and cultural undertaking; the current music sector, a poor relative of culture, is poorly publicized. Never thoughts: take the time to present the whole undertaking, clarify its issues, let us agree on its issues, outline widespread objectives and assume collectively about its prospects. Except that aside from exchanges with the elected to tradition, none of this was attainable. The mayor didn’t come to Pub ADK once. In October 2014, none of the elected representatives of the town attended the general public meeting of presentation of our undertaking to our companions, whereas the date had been agreed and validated with them. Equally, in 2014 and 2015, none of the semi-annual follow-up committees, these important exchanges and discussions between companions, deliberate and made obligatory by our agreement with the town, did not happen, regardless of our common requests. . For our half, we’ve got repeatedly questioned the town and its elected officials on their cultural policy, requested to seek the advice of the municipal cultural venture in order to know its orientations, to understand their expectations and adapt our challenge to theirs. Our requests have remained a lifeless letter. How in these circumstances might we construct a venture that might higher meet Roisséens' expectations? And tips on how to develop new tasks once we are unilaterally imposed initially of 2016 a conference of 1 yr only?
A call for tasks as an eviction?
It is arduous to consider that the call for tasks announced by the Mayor of Roissy for mid-July is really open to our association and our challenge. First because we are mid-October, it has nonetheless not been revealed and we’ve no information of the town: we have no idea its content, its schedule, or the means out there . However, the cultural division of the town invites itself the day before for the subsequent day to the Pub ADK with corporations to determine estimates in alternative of our materials. How not to consider that the town prepares our departure?
The mayor's silence on this name for tasks has profound consequences for our affiliation because there is human being at stake, there is employment, additionally linked to professional integration. No place of activity, no activity no revenue, no income no staff: three redundancies are anticipated for 2017, two of which concern supported jobs. Above all, what is going to turn out to be of all these ADK Pub volunteers, these many trainees and civic providers hosted annually? On the very coronary heart of our venture, we discover this logic of professional integration: for 10 years, it was volunteers who created, lived and developed this challenge. There are greater than 200 in the ADK Pub's historical past, which have benefited from a diverse trades apprenticeship, no matter expertise or training. Educated in the methods of sound, mild, the reception of artists, know-how, communication, ticketing, group life … some have even discovered work by means of this transmission of data and know-how that operated at Pub ADK. If this dynamic have been to stop, the human and social consequences can be notably necessary; an irony once we know that the mayor of Roissy-en-Brie is vice-president in cost of employment, coaching and professional integration of the brand new agglomeration of Paris-Vallée de la Marne.
A pure and simple cease of inventive and cultural tasks?
We do not perceive how we got here to such a state of affairs, with a lot misunderstanding and lack of communication. The Pub ADK challenge has by no means been so professional, numerous and successful; our partners are more numerous annually, in Roissy-en-Brie as elsewhere. The mounted tasks goal to develop the inventive and cultural practices of the inhabitants of this territory, to sensitize everybody to the culture past the cultural, social and financial variations. In 2016, we work with several main faculties of the town, schools, high school, conservatory, the youth service of the town, the House of Solidarity, the association Cultures of the Coronary heart … Each weekend for 10 years, The Pub ADK opens its doorways to all, easy curious or amateurs of present music, in the identify of a tradition of proximity. 75 openings in 2015, more than half free, for almost 200 live shows. The penalties are additionally burdensome for local inventive creation: more than 80% of those 200 groups got here from Seine-et-Marne and the three bordering departments, with greater than half of them coming from our department. To not point out the inventive residencies, rehearsals and recordings made, all this dedication for local artists to create, categorical, develop. All this may be completed?
The best way to show help?
We aren’t giving up on our associative, inventive and cultural venture. We’re convinced of its relevance in Seine-et-Marne and decided to do the whole lot in order that it exists tomorrow in Roissy-en-Brie. We’d like solutions, an actual dialogue with the town but in addition increased partnership and financial help, which fits beyond the supply of premises, its license IV and the tiny grant of four,850 € awarded in 2016. We hope that the town is finally positioned as a robust and unavoidable companion, eager to take care of this place of life and creation on their territory. We have to be acknowledged and thought of for who we are: a participant in the local financial system, an essential factor of attractiveness and notoriety of the town, an area affiliation important in the development of inventive practices and in the access to the culture of Roissy-en-Brie populations.
