Some twenty researchers in human and social sciences, mostly from the information and communication sciences, from CEMTI (University of Paris 8), CREM (University of Lorraine), and international researchers, are currently studying the phenomena of Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding in the cultural field in France, the United States, Latin America and Africa. This study aims to analyze crowdsourcing and cultural crowdfunding platforms. These collaborative platforms use crowds to participate in the production (sourcing) and / or funding of various projects in the cultural and media fields. Do they participate in a phenomenon of democratization and cultural diversification or, on the contrary, contribute to the strengthening of globalized industrial logics, under the guise of the empowerment of users and citizens?
