Conference at the Festival de Marseilles II

at the Théâtre des Bernardines

Within the programme FESTIVAL OF IDEAS, MAKING THE CITY TOGETHER #2 of the Festival de Marseille: Co-creation of the city between artists, inhabitants, spaces and institutions

Reflections and discussion

For this session we are rephrasing the larger question of “creating the city together”: what is the position of the arts (of cultural politics, institutions, programming and artists) in a polycentric, multi-scale and multi-identity urban society? Within this framework, what are the co-productions (partnerships, methods, themes, etc.) needed in that effect?

With La Biennale des Écritures du Réel and the artists in residence Vooruit (Gand). Debate and reflections with Eric Corijn (Université Libre de Bruxelles), Fanny Robles (Professor and researcher at LERMA, Aix-Marseille Université) and local researchers.
