Today is the first day of the Printemps de Septembre Festival, from September 21st to October 21st. During one month, more than 50 artists show their artworks in many places of the Toulouse metropolis.

Since 2001 the Festival has improved its artistic proposals to turn into a free global event, open to all types of audience. Young and old alike will enjoy it: concerts, projections, spectacles, lighting, sound, video, installations, painting, sculpture, we find contemporary art in many forms. A motivated and dynamic team fusses and triggers the public’ curiosity under the direction of Marie-Thérèse Perrin, the president and foundress, and Christian Bernard, the director.

This year the festival is named “Fracas et Frêles Bruits”. The festival guide is the best tool to prepare the visit. Stressed people can study it in detail whereas other will prefer the charm of the discovery. Our crush: the Alain Bublex (former industrial designer) installation in the Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse’ courtyard, or the Nina Childress paintings at the Paul-Dupuy museum. You will find more surprises going to the Stéphane Dafflon production, at the ceiling of the Riverside building, or at the catch games with musical sets at the Halles de la Cartoucherie on September 22nd.

The Printemps de Septembre is also the occasion to visit the known and secret Toulouse: the Abattoirs, the Couvent des jacobins, the Hôtel-Dieu, the Maison Salvan, and many more. We will say no more…

The Festival has reinforced its presence in the city with the opening of the Adresse du Printemps de Septembre located Quai de la Daurade. This cultural and friendly place offers every Tuesday exhibitions and performances with artists. A good opportunity to discuss and share!
