presentation

The institut supérieur des arts de Toulouse, an Établissement Public de Coopération Culturelle (EPCC - Public Institution for Cultural Cooperation), is the result of the unification in 2011 of:
– the école supérieure des beaux-arts de Toulouse, a royal academy founded in the mid-18th century, which became the fine arts department of the isdaT;
– the centre d’études supérieures de musique et danse (CESMD) founded in 1993 by the government and the city hall of Toulouse, now the performing arts department of the isdaT.

areas of specialisation

Through the implementation since 2011 of courses associating the fine arts and performing arts departments, the isdaT offers students a specific multi-disciplinary skill in the field of contemporary creation. Since 2011, the isdaT has been the only institution in France that offers a tertiary-level education in art, design, graphic design, music and dance. This structure enables exchanges between musicians, artists and dancers to feed into its courses and allows the school to diversify its windows onto current artistic issues and realities.

The fine arts department of the isdaT is the only school within the greater southwest territory to provide courses covering all three options: art, design and graphic design. Similarly, the performing arts department is the only national tertiary complex to offer all three options of jazz, classical and contemporary dance for the Diplôme d’État Danse, as well as all the instruments and options for its musical diplomas, at both undergraduate level and as ongoing professional training courses.

consultation and funding bodies

The isdaT is managed by a board of directors presided by Catherine Blanc, the municipal councillor of the Toulouse city council in charge of culture. The board of directors deliberates on all questions pertaining to the operation of the institution and particularly the general orientation of the institution’s policy, the study regulations of each department, the general internal regulations, the budget and accounting, etc. Its composition is inscribed within the statutes of the institution.

The Board of Education and Student Activities relevant to each department, fine arts and performing arts, meets every 3 months and deals with questions related to the pedagogy of the establishment, to student activities, and to the school’s overall mission and its fulfilment. The composition of the board is laid down in the statues and, besides the management team, associates representatives from partner organisations, teachers, assistants, students and non-teaching staff.

The Scientific Board is a shared consultative organism of isdaT’s fine arts and performing arts departments. Its composition is laid down in the statues of the institution. It comprises teacher and student representatives from the two departments and external personalities. The Board is consulted regarding training programmes, research projects, and projects concerning the modification or creation of diplomas.

The Technical Committee has jurisdiction in terms of the organisation and operation of services, staff training, hygiene and security, employment conditions and human resources policy. It meets three times a year.
