Villa Tamaris Centre d’art TPM
Images and wonders
This art centre, overlooking the bay of Lazaret, is dedicated to the visual arts, concentrating on photography and video. Yann Arthus-Bertrand and, last autumn, Peter Lindbergh lit up these walls with their vision... Willy Ronis is expected this summer. The villa regularly hosts artists in residence.
295 avenue de la Grande Maison, La Seyne-sur-Mer
It’s the place to be for great entertainment: theatre, classical or popular music, gipsy jazz or opera, the programme is dense and eclectic. A place where you can meet friends for a drink before a performance. Meetings, conferences, a springboard for local artists with the La Ciotat en Scène festival (2 to 6 May), and exhibitions...

In the spotlight
The oldest cinema in the world, still in operation, is open to the sea and committed to traditional and innovative 7th Art. The Art et Essai cinema displays its labels and ambitions with evenings and previews in the presence of film teams, visits, and prestigious partners. The 40th edition of the Festival du Premier Film Francophone de La Ciotat (7 to 11 June), also referred to as the Berceau du Cinéma, brings together filmmakers and the public with screenings, short films, European films and films shot in the South of France.

Eclectic breeding ground
Behind the enthusiasm of its director, Jean-Pierre Blanc, there are landmark events in the frenetic catwalk calendar... The fashion world enthusiastically converges there for what will be worn, by the clothes designers of tomorrow. People come here for its festivals (12-15 october Fashion-Photography-Acessories and 22-25 jun Design Parade) spread between Hyères and Toulon.
