Rapport de l’évaluateur du projet

15 jours de créativité artistique ont eu lieu du 2 au 13 février 2015. J’ai pu assister à la présentation des résultats des ateliers l’après-midi du 13 février.

141 élèves de différentes classes ont participé aux ateliers: expression dramatique, conte, théâtre, cinémapocket, slam, cirque. Pendant la présentation du 13 février, le Festivaleke, les élèves ont montré aussi une exposition reprenant les créations des ateliers photographie, space painting, art graphique, graffiti et street-art. Il y avait aussi l’affiche de présentation des activités et un drink avec des très bons petits snacks élaborés par les élèves.

Certaines présentations étaient remarquables et d'autres émouvantes parce qu'ils ont montrées les sensibilités et fragilités des jeunes. J'ai pu parler à plusieurs professeurs, animateurs et artistes. Il résultait de ces discussions que la chance de ceux qui terminent le CEFA avec succès sont très grandes d'avoir du travail après. Les élèves travaillent déjà 24 heures par semaines dans leur métier choisi et sont rémunérés. Une grande partie d'eux se réjouit chaque année de ces deux semaines consacrées au Gratin de cultures. Néanmoins, il y en a une participation fluctuante et instable aux ateliers ce qui rende le travail des animateurs assez difficile. En général, j'ai pu constater une énorme motivation sur les deux côtés - professeurs et élèves - et une vraie solidarité entre professeurs et élèves.
