​With the patronage of the Géant des Beaux-Arts, Versand Sud is launching a drawing contest for preschoolers (ages 3 to 5.) This contest aims to celebrate the expression of the youth who are not (or not too heavily) influenced by the media.


There is no theme, we want to let their inspiration flow and guide these children to allow them to be as creative as they want to be and let them surprise us.

Drawing allows children to explore their knowledge, their souvenirs, their dreams and to build their own creative and imaginative spirit. 


That is the reason why we’re excited to have our jury of professionals in the contemporary art discover those drawings.


Le Cloître

This former cloister, named Saint-François de Sales at the time, located on the hill of Saint-Bruno, in the 13th arrondissement comes to life  in a new light and becomes the scene of an innovative project: to build a space of social entrepreneurship with young people from the northern neighbourhoods of Marseille.
