The Belgian, Eric Pringels, who set himself up as an instigator of ideas in Marseilles (City of Culture 2013) has come up with yet another creative project : an alternative, ecological and cultural campsite in the centre of Marseilles. “Yes We Camp“ is a temporary campsite made exclusively of recycled materials. It welcomed 15,000 visitors and 5,000 campers in the space of 150 days. The idea behind his philosophy is to allow the potential of a place to emerge by means of projects which bring together art, social issues, the economy and politics.
The organisers in Mons, City of Culture in 2015, are quite enthusiastic about his original ideas.
