Event in Avignon :

The "Semaine d’art en Avignon" or Art Week in Avignon is a quote, it is a reference to the first name, given in 1947, to the event that turned into the Avignon Festival. Semaine d'Art is the term used by the then-Mayor, Paul Rouvier and Jean Vilar, for the very first theater week in Avignon in 1947.

We are in an unparallelled situation, and a period of reconstruction following a major health crisis. We firmly believe that culture is a powerful driver of recovery and revival.

This "Semaine d’art" is not the Festival d’Avignon. It is an opportunity to get together during a holiday period, to provide exposure for the artists, to enable audiences to enjoy their work, and to give our area the opportunity to welcome people who love coming here. An autumn of much-needed reunion.
