A festival in the city
The « Partner Audience » concept grew from the idea of involving audience members, surprising them and challenging them so as to make this cultural event into a great urban festival.
In 2018 the twelve partners were Molly, Daisy, Fatima, Marie-Hélène, Ludovic, Anrifinat, Danièle, Thomas, Ouided, Cyril et Marie-Ange. Maybe you’ll be a partner soon!
All year the Festival de Marseille develops educational and cultural initiatives for schools: from primary school to university, hundreds of children and teenagers have the opportunity to discover dance and contemporary performance art.
La Charte Culture : 2,000 tickets for €1 each
La Charte Culture is a system that helps underprivileged or disabled people to enjoy the Festival thanks to support from its sponsors.
Le MarsLab brings together young people from Marseille (under 30 years old) working in a range of different disciplines. They have an opportunity to enrich their approach by going to the shows, meeting artists and performers, and taking part in discussion groups and workshops.
