It is a party that knows how to remain political. There are two debates on the program on Saturday. The first “In Palestine, from school to university, another way to resist?

We spoke with Léna Raud, national secretary of the UEC and organizer of Bal Pop’ party

“Access to culture is something very close to our hearts, because in fact the first thing that jumps into the budget of a family or even a student is, well, culture, these are recreational outings. Allowing young people to attend concerts and discussions for free is a philosophy that seems necessary given the economic and social context. Because culture, which we tend to forget, is liberation, it’s socialization too.

The more we liberate ourselves, the more we develop a critical mind about our surroundings. It is no coincidence that education and culture are the first to be affected by dictatorships. In the same way, when we want to take away a woman’s rights, we forbid her to go out, forbid her to go to the theatre, and so on. Because art is another way of looking at the world and being able to claim a free popular sphere, accessible to all, is also to claim this right of access to culture and liberation.

There is another aspect of the ball, it is somewhat similar to the philosophy of a music festival, it is to allow amateur artists or artists in the process of professionalism access to a stage in the heart of Paris, the crowds of two evenings, and to be able to make themselves known, which is sometimes difficult for artists who are young and more difficult to Music, which is a very competitive environment and suffers from the monopoly of major music production companies. »
