During a speech to the rectors of the academy, Emmanuel Macron confirmed on August 25 the expansion of the Pass culture from the 6th class.
This August 25 during the back-to-school meeting of academy rectors at the Sorbonne, in Paris. Emmanuel Macron confirmed the extension of the Culture Pass from the 6th grade.
Already on July 6 during his general policy speech to the deputies, Elisabeth Borne announced this enlargement . ' Let's make culture accessible to everyone, from the very young. This is why we will suggest to extend the culture pass from sixth grade and to amplify artistic and cultural education ', explained the Prime Minister. Remember that since January 2022, teenagers can take advantage of it from the 4th grade through an individual component and a collective component allocated to schools. More than 600,000 young people aged 15 to 17 have already used the Culture pass according to the Ministry of National Education. In fact, the system has been extended since January 10 to 17-year-old students (30 euros), on January 20 to 16-year-old students (30 euros) and on January 31 to 15-year-olds (20 euros). It will now be accessible from the 6th grade, as announced by Elisabeth Borne.
Deployed in May 2021, the Culture Pass allows each young person to benefit from an envelope of 300 euros, valid for two years, to carry out an artistic activity, take advantage of cultural venues (cinemas, theatres, concert halls, museums, etc.) and invite friends to share a cultural discovery (“duo” offers).
This Culture pass is a 300 euro credit for 18 year olds . 15 year olds receive a 20 euro Culture Pass and 16 and 17 year olds a 30 euro Culture Pass. The amount of the collective share of the Culture pass, for college students and high school students is set by establishment, 'in proportion to the number of students enrolled in each level of education concerned'. It should be noted that this collective share is exclusively dedicated to the financing of artistic and cultural education activities carried out in groups and supervised by teachers.
4,500 cultural places are referenced in the Culture Pass catalog , including 2,500 physical locations. Offers are sometimes restricted. Thus the books are to be collected from booksellers and cannot be ordered with Amazon. On the music side, Deezer is offered and not Spotify. Finally, subscriptions on video platforms concern Canal +, OCS, Filmo TV (and soon Salto) but not Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney. Another limit: digital expenses cannot exceed 100 euros.
