The Le Festival Art, Villes et Paysages (Festival of Art, Cities and Landscapes) is back at Les Hortillonnages!

The Festival Art, Villes et Paysages has signed up for a 9th edition and is on its marks and ready to go in the Hortillonnages d'Amiens, from 9 June to 21 October, 2018.

 

In collaboration, as ever, with the Maison de la Culture d'Amiens Métropole, the Festival Art, Villes et Paysages returns for a 9th consecutive year, from 9 June to 21 October.

Organised this time by Art & Jardins Hauts-de-France, the festival will present 48 gardens and as many installations aiming to engage the walker with questions about the environmental problems of the contemporary world.

A truly artistic adventure, the Art, Cities and Landscapes Festival allows curious young landscape artists, architects and visual artists to meet in a setting where normal time is suspended.

So, take a breath of fresh air and let yourself be carried away in an environment that showcases a wave of freshness and a new perspective on man-made landscapes.

The opening of the festival, which will be followed by a dinner, will take place on the Île aux Fagots on 30 June 30 at 18:30. Reservations essential, from Art & Jardins Hauts-de-France before 27 June (+33 (0) 322 525296 or contact@artetjardins-hdf.com)
