As a symbole of the evolution of Marseilles, the Mucem (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations) is a place full of things to discover: permanent and temporary exhibitions, Mediterranean hanging gardens, sun baths and unique panoramic views of Marseilles and the sea.
You can admire Ai Weiwei exhibition, Fan-Tan, until November, 12th. The Mucem has invited the Chinese artist, a major actor of the international artistic scene. Photographer, architect, sculptor, performer, film director and social network activist, his work combines the Chinese way of thinking to contemporary art, notably finding inspiration in Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol's works.
Make old stones sing, make them live their spiritual history again thanks to music, that is the duty given to Via Aeterna. Via Aeterna was inaugurated in 2017, in the splendid Bay de Mont-Saint-Michel, and in the Merveille of the Mont, where so many pilgrims through the ages... Music and spirituality assemble people beyond differences.
By the way, that is what Via Aeterna just experimented with a similar Festival in Nara, Japan.In this place, as well as in the Bay de Mont-Saint-Michel, needs for harmony, meaning, and sharing are wholeheartedly felt... The first festival, in September 2017, in the Manche department, was meant to answer these expectations, ans its success has been recognised by all the participants. The second Festival, that will happen from September 20th to 23rd 2018, is again full of wonders for everyone, no matter who one is... Enlivened by the subject of peace, the festival will be a celebration of musics from numerous and varied backgrounds.
This contest is the opportunity to share your memories from the waterside: seaside architecture, walks atop limestone cliffs, holiday-makers chilling on the fine sand or summer workers... Coastlines are a great and wide source of inspiration, so take the plunge!
