The first stage of the project will consist of the “field work” – workshops with the artists and creators working in Lyon and/or the Rhone-Alpes region. This stage will help to define the contours and the major problematics of the creative world and to pinpoint the ways of the communication between the artistic and academic communities for mutual understanding and respect. 

The second stage will be devoted to the academic investigation and preparation of the members of the team for the conference and publication of the selected papers. In the context of this preparation we will organize discussions with the researchers prominent in their fields to nourish our thought during the workshops
