The cultural project is an important part of the University’s mission of education, research, and service to society.
Provoke new encounters, make time for experimentation, promote exchange, explore new forms of creativity - these are the missions at the heart of the cultural project at the Université Catholique de Lille.
This is a university that aims not only to pass on knowledge and skills, but also to train men and women to be free and aware of their environments - human beings open to society, attentive to expressions of thought such as art and spirituality, which offer an understanding of reality that exceeds the purely rational point of view. In brief, men and women who are able to make meaning through actions.
The University Cultural Center (« Centre Culturel Vauban ») invites students to discover artists and their works through numerous conferences, cultural workshops (university choir, theatre, arts, orchestra…), and debates on current issues and cultural events (exhibitions, concerts…).
