The Holocaust archives

15 to 17 December 2015 in Auschwitz

In a context of internationalisation of research and economic and cultural globalisation, archivers should also have knowledge about operation of foreign archives, so as to bolster their skills and encourage their professional insertion.

Educationally and scientifically supervised by Marie-Anne Matard-Bonucci, a teacher at Paris 8, the students of the “Holocaust archives” laboratory-workshop will explore the city of Auschwitz for three days. On the programme: the Jewish Cemetery, the Old Synagogue, the Auschwitz Museum, the ghetto and Birkenau.

The collective work of students during this academic trip will be presented to a Board of Examiners in March 2015. This workshop has been established with the support of the National Archives, founding partner of the Masters in professional archiving which offers this laboratory-workshop.


Digital muselogy

15 to 17 January 2016 in Marrakesh

For its third year, students of this laboratory-workshop are given the opportunity to offer new uses of digital tools in order to meet new demands and requirements.  Students exercise their creativity in the field of cultural production while implementing professional standards currently applicable to the heritage sector.

This year, the aim is to develop multimedia content for an exhibition on the art of gardens in the Arab world. Students will be responsible for designing scientific and educational content, including proposals for multimedia content and the staging of the objects.


Cultural mediation around the heritage of Malta

26 February to 5 March 2016 in Valletta

The aim of this workshop, supervised by Marc Veyrat – professor at the University of Savoie-Mont Blanc and coordinator of the book “100 concepts for digital art“- is to create a scheme that crosses three universities (Paris 8 – University of Savoie Mont-Blanc – University of Malta) where students experience a region (Valetta/Malta) with regard to the millennia-old French presence by creating interactive devices (serious games, alternate reality game, urban game) to promote this cultural heritage, within the city walls, using digital technologies.

These experiments will be combined with an international scientific symposium where they will be theorized (concept of an interactive scenario constructed intelligently) using thoughts and scientific tools developed by professionals, researchers, teachers and artists.


Odyssey: augmented digital edition

25 to 29 April 2016 in Athens

“Odyssey is a fabulous world of gods, heroes and monsters, but also one about real places and archaeological and artistic works. »

The first work of Western literature (together with the Iliad) Odyssey is also an intercultural work which, through the journey of Odysseus, makes the link between the shores of the Mediterranean. Gérard Genette believes that Odyssey is the first “hypertextual work” because, with its multiple narratives and narrators, it includes its own revisions and has been seen as a seminal work for centuries. Even today, it permeates our imagination and touches a large audience.

The aim of the laboratory-workshop run by Ghislaine Azémard, head of the masters in digital creation and publishing, is to go over all the dimensions of the work using an innovative interface, experiencing today’s problems of remediation and editorial content through three working areas: the corpus, the travel and the narrative.

Students must produce an innovative editorial object whose prototype will then be promoted by CRéaTIC at shows and on social media.


Comédie française 2.0: repertory with a digital angle

16 to 18 May 2016 in Boston

This Master Theatre workshop: writings and performances, directed by Tiphaine Karsenti, a teacher at the University of Paris Ouest.

The aim is to give clarity to past programmes of the oldest French theatrical institutions with the tools and communication codes of contemporary theatre resulting from decentralisation (Théâtre Gérard Philipe in Saint-Denis) and to bring back to life to these forgotten pieces using the tools and concepts designed by today’s practitioners.

To help them select the theatre pieces to add to the programme, to write communication texts about them and to create practical proposals, students will be welcomed by the curator of the Library-Museum of the Comédie-Française, they will meet with specialists of the institution and the era and will work with a theatre director, teachers and a graphic designer.

Save the Date: icing on the cake – in addition to working with the prestigious institution that is the Comédie Française – a presentation about this workshop will take place at the RCF International Symposium in Boston from 16 to 18 May 2016.


The digital stage

16 May to 4 June in Quebec

This French-Canadian workshop will be held at the University of Laval in Quebec (Canada). It will be led by Robert Faguy, specialist of the stage and new technologies and director of the LANTISS laboratory (laboratory of new image, sound and stage technologies) and Sabine Quiriconi, teacher at the University of Paris Ouest.

The laboratory-workshop will take place over 3 weeks, as an intensive research-design, theoretical-practical and technical seminar, relating to the subject of the digital stage.

Filming will take place during the 3 weeks in order to be able to show the way the work evolves. Available on our social networks.


From dictatorship to democracy: archival work

1 to 8 June 2016 in Haiti

This 5th – and final – working period of the laboratory-workshop “From dictatorship to democracy: archival work” – made up of the Masters in Philosophy and Contemporary cultural criticism taught at the University of Paris 8 – is located in Haiti. It will focus on the shared theoretical achievements and the material collected during the projects undertaken. This conclusion will also be the perfect time to think about the consequences and identify actions to be put in place, particularly in relation to the National Archives of France.

This final step will synthesize all the work undertaken by the CRéaTIC students who, in particular, were able to share their work in Argentina, as well as students of the Paris 8 masters in Philosophy in Port-au-Prince.

This laboratory-workshop was undertaken in partnership with the Fokal, a local citizen association: The Fokal association

Externalised laboratory-workshops 2014-2015

From dictatorship to democracy: transition, memory and judgement

The laboratory workshop, From dictatorship to democracy: transition, memory and judgement, is a component of the Master’s in Philosophy and Contemporary Cultural Criticism taught at Paris 8 University.

This workshop introduces theoretical and methodological questions on memory focusing on the issue of dictatorship in Haiti between 1957 and 1986 under the Presidency of François and then Jean-Claude Duvalier.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the historical and political discourse with the phenomenon of extreme violence and what it conceals. It will allow for observation and identification of traces of past events in the urban, periurban or off centre topography, to collect memories of stakeholders, witnesses or victims and support the production of testimonies of dictatorship. Finally, students will be invited to partake in creative writing and to use their creative skills to create bridges acting as memories of experiences.

The workshop is organised in 3 phases :
• Phase 1 : Investigation into the memory of the Haiti dictatorship
• Phase 2 : Writings, representations and memories of extreme violence
• Study days: Judicial, political and historical recitals

Around ten or so students from CréaTIC took part in this workshop held in Port-au-Prince, under the pedagogical and scientific aegis of Stéphane Douailler and Françoise Simasotchi.
