Representative of ongoing transformations in the society, European metropolis are moved by deep transformations (the heterogeneousness of their structures, the densification and segmentation of spaces, the diversification of the populations, the new physical and virtual mobilities). They need to reinvent their own mode of making, developing and of living together: from ancient cities lined and organized according to the model and image of the power to contemporary inclusive metropolises, connected at European and global levels. They hold, in their interstitial spaces, a reserve of invention and experimentation: alternative economies, new modes of interacting and living together, new forms of governance and activism, reformulation of our relationship to the environment and nature. We wish to question these interstices, as new zones of friction and interaction, in a cultural, citizen and European approach. In this prospective, we wish to address two main issues: the reinvention of new forms of citizenship – in connection with cultural diversity, on one hand, and the actual making of this citizenship, on the other hand.

Cultural diversity is constitutive, in a more and more rich and complex way, of contemporary metropolises. It is reflected in their townscapes historically shaped by the manners and tracks of the multiple cultures of their inhabitants (geographical, religious, generational, gender, social, etc.). These accumulated signs consist of elements of differentiation just as much as of indications of hybrid identities. (more)
Considering ongoing social changes in the European societies – and in the contemporary metropolis, demands also to address, while searching for new forms of citizenship and of ‘living together’, the issue of the spaces dedicated to negotiation and the issue of the collective making of citizenship, bringing together various human groupings in constant recomposition : social, cultural, political, etc. (more)

Living together? Making society ? Here are two questions addressed, every year, by twelve young film directors. It takes place to Lussas, in Ardèche. It is a question of making a collective movie. Twelve people making a movie together? It has to be a quest for a social and human reality while echoing questions raised by a collective practice. In spring, 2008, it was Balazuc: a community of life and project, a village perched high on the mountains, a place where comes no car but in which, this spring, the dynamiters arrived.
