Pro-Choice Art budget regulator :

Since 1982 in the context of an institutional decentralizing campaign
impulsed by President Fran=E7ois Mitterrand, France - through Jack Lang who
then was Ministre de la Culture - has dotated its regions with numerous
educational and technical tools to promote Culture in the hexagon and the
DOM -TOM, according to the multipolar cultural beaming principle of which
Yves Klein had become the spokesman in his time.

Today, France can be proud of having developped a network of competences an=
places in position to constitute and present to everybody Contemporary Art
Reserves which stand comparison with National Museums' collections. And thi=
in spite of budgetary adversity, monetary and economic crisis.
The task of collector of these Cultural Reserves falls to the FRACs (Fonds
R=E9gionaux d'Art Contemporain) which assume their roles of decision-makers,
of managers and curators of the collected goods.
Budgets allocated to the FRACs are voted by national, regional and local
authorities and artworks are chosen by the best professionals in the field.

Tomorrow, and thanks to your vote, FRACS will be allocated Data-Heads
budgets that will enable them to invest on the NELia market and constitue
the first institutional collections ever of Informative Arts in the world.
