At Lumière Lyon 2, we believe that culture is essential to the wellbeing and development of the academic community. For that reason, we seek to make arts and culture part of our everyday lives.

A yearly line-up of cultural events open to all

Throughout the academic year, the Artistic and Cultural Activities Department (fr. Service d’Action artistique et culturelle) organises a range of events: live performances, exhibitions, film screenings, concerts, and more.
These events usually offer free admissions and are open to everyone: staff, students and the general public.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in numerous artistic workshops throughout the year, taught by artists and culture professionals.

Encouraging Students’ Creative Energy and Activities

The Artistic and Cultural Activities Department encourages and supports new ideas, projects, and cultural initiatives of students, especially through the Solidarity and Development Fund for Student Initiatives (fr. Fonds de solidarité et de développement des initiatives é or FSDIE). This dedicated fund gives students the opportunity to build their own artistic or cultural project (theatre, dance, music, writing, film), independent of its relation to an academic assignment.

A creative and vibrant environment

Beyond arts education and cultural events, we encourage our students to be creative by ensuring they have access to our facilities, which include:
  • the Cultural Amphitheatre, a larger-than-life auditorium located on the Porte des Alpes Campus equipped with more than 400 seats
  • the Grand Amphitheatre, a lecture hall, jewel of the Berges du Rhône Campus
  • the exhibit rooms of the Student Center on the Porte des Alpes Campus
  • the Musée des Moulages or MuMo, a museum home to casts of sculptures from antiquity to the modern era
