Common in the international cultural sector, yet still hard to grasp for many working in the field, the notion of equity encompasses important issues: representativeness, cultural rights, solidarity...

How can artists and professionals seize the principle of equity in creation, in their relations with the public and in international collaborations? The two-day Atelier, open to artists and cultural professionals, offered a space for discussion and practice around issues of fairness and solidarity. Space was given to both European and non-European perspectives.
