What is the "social field"?

For cultural institutions, the "social field" refers to audiences for whom access to culture is made difficult by their social or economic vulnerability.

The mission of the national monuments is to develop specific actions for these people who do not allow themselves to frequent cultural places, and this in close connection with national or local structures that are engaged in the fight against exclusion (REP, NGOs, associations fighting against precariousness, social centers, "youth" services of town halls, neighborhood houses, associations helping incoming populations, services of judicial protection of youth, etc.).

The visit offer

The monument's "Accueil Pour Tous" service offers visits or workshops to discover the castle from every angle:

  • its history and architecture
  • the tapestry of the Apocalypse
  • its gardens and biodiversity
  • and the various themes related to its history (the bestiary, the prisons, archaeology...)

Privileged moments of exchange, these walks are above all an opportunity to familiarize oneself with the places to feel more "at home" and to share a moment of conviviality.

Professionals and social workers: contact us to organize a tailor-made outing!
