The Amazing History of Street Art - Marseille
From 03/05/2013 to 20/05/2013
The Amazing History of Street Art is back this year for a special edition in 2013, in which six cities are bustling with local companies, artists from Europe and the Mediterranean.
This event was created in 2008 by Karwan, with the support of the General Council of Bouches-du-Rhône. In bringing original art performance within the public space, the Arts de la Rue (street arts) are somehow a reflection of democracy. If they can offer smiles and escape in some countries for free, they can not in others. Thus, through an increasingly strong metissage of traditions, the Arts de la Rue are becoming international and each country can be approached differently, depending on the cultural and political contexts. With the many different companies present in the program, the different ways to invest public spaces promise to be varied.
To enjoy the many events organized in the context of the European Capital of Culture, our 3 and 4 star hotels in Marseille offer comfortable rooms near the city center.
