La transmission du patrimoine culturel immatériel à l'école primaire : le cas du projet choral scolaire "Les Voix de la mémoire"

Abstract : Through an action research which has involved fifteen classes from the urban district of Vesoul, thispaper aims at questioning the link between remembering and transmitting our intangible culturalheritage, reflecting on the stakes surrounding a memorial choir project, and records what aneducation on such topics can be like today.The year 2014 marked the hundred-year anniversary of the beginning of WWI and theseventy-year anniversary of the WW2 Liberation. In this context, the Direction des Servicesdépartementaux de l’Éducation nationale de la Haute-Saône, along with other contributors of thearea, initiated the project entitled « The Voices of Memory ». Under the instruction of musicprofessionals, over three hundred children practiced historical, traditional and contemporary songs about war and peace, all year long. The project concluded with a performance in a subsidised theatre for an audience including families and officials.This research has aimed at gathering as many viewpoints as possible through itsquestionnaires, interviews and observations. The teachers, one Education Inspector, the families and the pupils all talk of what took place at school. The children are viewed as active participants in the project they are made to take part in. A specific methodology was developed so as to record, listen to and value their words. The joys and hardhips of the learning experience of all involved have been carefully highlighted and decyphered, with careful emphasis on the emotions triggered by the memorial itself, viewed as a rite in honour of the French Republic.
