In the mining area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, art & jardins | Hauts-de-France offers the creation of participatory gardens to highlight this industrial heritage and celebrate workers’ solidarity. Heaps, pits, headframes, soffits are all elements of inspiration for landscapers and artists who build gardens and facilities with residents and local elected officials through a process of unprecedented citizen consultation and inclusive mediation.

During discussions with the inhabitants, it is in turn a question of memory to be preserved, stories to be told, traditions to be perpetuated and natural spaces to be protected; a citizen approach supported by the Hauts-de-France Region, the Department of Pas-de-Calais, the Lens-Liévin and Béthune Bruay Artois Lys Romane Communautés d’agglomération, the Pays d’art et d’histoire of Lens-Liévin, Odyssey 2019 and patrons.

Four gardens have thus been created or are in the process of being built. They are an invitation for residents and visitors to reinterpret the industrial past of northern France.

Five new participatory gardens are planned in the Pas-de-Calais at Calonne-Ricouart, Harnes and Méricourt, which will create a path of mining memory.
