Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Culture 2013

Marseille has been designated as the European Capital of Culture for 2013. As celebrations unfold all along the year, they will turn the city – and the whole of Provence – into a hub for creative, artistic encounters and dialogue across the Euro-Mediterranean region.

Throughout the year, Marseille-Provence will open a string of new cultural facilities: museums (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, Regards de Provence Museum), concert halls (the Silo, the J1), cultural centers (Villa Méditerranée), galleries (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Regional Contemporary Art Fund), and artist studios. Many of these venues are located on the mile-long seafront, helping to forge a stronger link between the city center and the port.
