Thumette Léon & Nolùen Le Buhé
Thumette Léon is a singer, dancer, choreographer. Native from Lorient, she had long wanted to practice "singing to answer" : the art of traditional singers around her in Brittany. That she is deaf deep since the birth does not change anything : Thumette sings in « singing sign » and dance in « choresign », two very rich artistic languages elaborated from the LSF, the French sign language. Thumette is also a translator-interpreter. It fell well: Nolùen Le Buhé, traditional Breton singer of the most famous, often heard say at the end of her concerts : "what is beautiful ! But it's a pity that we do not understand ... " Thus was born KLEW, a show for the little ones as for the olders, playful, euphoric, where the senses are at the party. A bilingual show, made for those who speak neither of the two languages.

Jacques Le Goff will act as the red thread. He will open the symposium and conclude each half-day's session with a brief summary and some insights.
A sociologist, University professor, member of the LaRAC research laboratory on learning in context, Université Grenoble Alpes.
"There is a social contradiction between deficient bodies and work (human relationship to nature, division of labour and work organisation). That does not mean that people with disabilities do not know how or do not want to work, or are even unable to be qualified: but that the usual labour conditions mean that disability and work either do not meet up, or do so poorly or insufficiently, due to imbalances of skills and gaps between expectations and possibilities, e.g. between employers and disabled job-seekers. "

The anthropological revolution of/in our relation to work: Questioning the way we relate to work (instrumental, social, symbolic relations) undeniably reveals the sweeping anthropological change which is taking place today before our very eyes. Whereas, over several centuries work as been a major, or even the main "integrator", its role in socialisation and in the construction of social identities is lessening, becoming secondary, and could even become negligible in the short term.

Foresight also means bringing about desired changes. The study identified thirteen essential forms of leverage to develop employment and work for people with disabilities, four of which should take priority: promoting vocational training; growing the number of young people with disabilities who are in general high schools and in higher education, with a compulsory 6% of student bodies; supporting the hiring effort in small and medium-sized enterprises; and finally, promoting innovation within the protected and adapted sector, to create more links with the mainstream environment.
Dominique Velche, a researcher at EHESP-MSSH, has conducted a study spanning several years on employment policies implemented in European Union countries. He has authored many comparative studies on public policies favouring people with disabilities.
He has sought to better understand why seemingly identical measures in different European countries can display quite different results which are difficult to compare. He has also studied how the so-called passive (allowances) and active (incentives to work) options are linked together in policies of countries with different issues and resources. His new book is in preparation to be published in 2018.
A lecturer and researcher at Université de Bretagne Occidentale, he holds a DEA postgraduate degree in ethnology and a PhD in Sociology. He works at the LABERS sociology studies and research laboratory. He conducted the study on "Students with disabilities facing the job market: inclusion is underway, but many challenges remain"
The inclusion of students with disabilities is indeed underway within our universities. However, there is also cause to analyse the reasons why France fell so far behind in the period from 1970 -2000. As for their future and and their presence on the job market, we shall measure the fairly positive changes. But it must be emphasised that there is an entire fringe of people with disabilities who are still a long way from being employed. We can also examine the situation of students who, once they have completed their studies, maintain the status of disabled person, whether or not by choice. Not all of them do so, far from it, in fact.
