A festival of new creations for one destination
In 2010, Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme decided to create the Festival Myprovence. A different kind of tourism communication focused on contemporary artistic creation. Three years down the road, this becomes a Marseille-Provence 2013 ,
Capitale Européenne de la Culture branded project.
During 4 years, the Festival team was driven by the same objectives: help people discover the Bouches-du-Rhône destination as seen through the eyes of the artists, both renowned and budding artists. Get people to discover off-the-beaten track, get people to meet and share.
Each year, after the creative competition on Internet open to all, the prize-winners and the jury member artists share an ephemeral artistic residence and produce works on the area. Exhibitions then display the fruit of this creative stimulation.
As a realization of these moments of sharing and creative stimulation, each year saw the production of exhibitions in prestigious venues (Abbey Montmajour Fondation Vasarely Musée regards de Provence) and the creation of a dedicated website. You will find here the collection of the artists vision on the Bouches-du-Rhône from 2010 to 2013, oniric, inspirational, poetic, intellectual, insolent, offset ... Another way to discover the territory Marseille-Provence.
