France's €500 culture aid for teens

Encouraging the discovery and diversifications of cultural activities is the aim of the Pass Culture smartphone app that will be launched for 18-year-olds in the first quarter of 2019.

It will offer €500 worth of cultural activities such as free concert tickets, books, film and theatre performances or digital magazines as well as music, dance, art lessons and even archaeology holidays.

Tested in four departments and with further tests in another this autumn to improve the geolocalisation function, it will not allow large-scale spending on Spotify or Netflix etc.

The €500million project is funded 80% by culture businesses and 20% by the state.
