Crossing the Marais is not like crossing the desert. On the contrary, for its 7th edition, the Les Traversées du Marais festival, from September 3 to 5, offers 47 events, all located in emblematic places, which are as many oases. From the Swedish Institute to the Wallonia-Brussels Center via the European House of Photography (MEP), the Carnavalet museum, Victor Hugo's house or even the MAIF Social club and the Gaîté lyrique, there is something to refresh yourself with to the best source.

Organized by Marais+, this rendez-vous of the start of the school year takes us towards the “Renaissance” – the theme chosen very aptly by the organizers who thus signal a new departure for the festival after confinement.
