Education plays a major and important part of the Visa pour I'Image Association.
Working with teacher training program organized by the Centre de Liaison de I'Enseignement, (Clemi ), this year between the 12th - 16th September local school children of all ages are treated to special viewings of the exhibitions accompanied by professional photographers and editors.
The participation of schools confirms that the festival Visa pour l'Image has become an important and valued educational tool in understanding media.
The Clemi (centre for liaison between teaching and information media) is part of the French Ministry of Education. It was created in 1983 with the mission of "promoting especially by means of training activities, the multiple use of news media in teaching with the aim of encouraging a better understanding of the world by pupils while simultaneously developing critical understanding." (Decree of April 1993).
To achieve this mission, the Clemi offers training sessions, educational programmes and events, opportunities of exchange and networking, and pedagogical publications. Training teachers to a better knowledge of the news media system, to the process of analysing and understanding their messages and to their pedagogical use in the classroom. Every year, the Clemi trains between 15.000 and 18.000 teachers in initial or permanent training.
Clemi will also provide the teachers with a guidebook to analyze pictures in the exhibitions. Between 12th and 16th September 2016 schools will have the opportunity to visit the exhibitions at Visa pour L'image. 5 or 6 professionals (photographers, editors) will be available to guide the groups.
