Exhibitions, but also...

The Festival des Ludions is also :

> Theatrical strolls (free of charge, reservation required, PRM access) to accompany visitors from one house to the next, in addition to individual tours. > Open stages throughout the day (singing, opera, music, poetry, slam, clowning…). > Convivial evenings (theater, music) to create a festive and cultural spirit:

  • Friday evening at 8.30pm: a poetic magic show (booking essential – €8/€6).
  • Saturday evening at 8pm: a festive meal (booking essential – 20€/15€).

> A writing workshop (free of charge, booking required) with the production of texts in tribute to the artists, to be read in public at the end of the festival. > Literary readings of novels and poetry (Saturday and Sunday at 4pm at the Almarita bar).

The program

All works presented during the festival are offered for sale. At the end of the festival, artists are invited to donate one of their works to the Ludions art library. The aim is to entrust artworks to private individuals for display in their homes for a year, thus bringing art to unexpected places. Younger generations are also involved, with children from Carolles school producing a piece of work inspired by the artists’ themes, and exhibiting it in each of the houses opposite the works for the duration of the festival.
