The ninth edition of the festival « Art, cities & landscape – Hortillonnages Amiens » is evolving and is under new management. While still working in collaboration with the « Maison de la Culture d’Amiens », it is now the creative label « Art & jardins – Hauts-de-France » which will organise the international garden festival.

The festival was conceived as a real means of supporting young creation and is more than ever rooted in the territory that it promotes and is involved in the natural environment that it strives to protect. « Art, cities & landscape » offers ways of reflecting on the issues of the contemporary world. How do we preserve our natural resources? Which modes of consumption and which agricultural models should we use? What is the place of nature in the city and what is man’s place in nature? Over and above the major environmental issues, the festival is involved locally and welcomes all year round a job integration workshop with responsibility for maintaining and cultivating the islands and the exhibits on display to the public.

This year once again, it is a landscaped voyage, a real artistic adventure that awaits you in the heart of the floating gardens of Amiens. Whether on foot from the « Île aux Fagots », or by boat from the « Port à Fumier », there are 46 gardens and exhibits by young landscapers, architects and visual artists that we will unveil to you in a timeless adventure off the beaten track.

As in previous years, investment is made in new public places. On the Rivery lake and on Robinson Island, festival-goers, residents and walkers on the Malaquis path or the towpath, will discover the very latest exhibits.  Further afield in the Somme valley and throughout the region, the label « Art & jardins – Hauts-de-France » presents a multitude of landscape gardens for you to visit in all seasons.
