Throughout its history, this multi-arts urban festival has always sought to remain a few steps ahead of its time and to experiment with new ideas. Our theme in 2021 will be the environment, enabling us to reprise and reassess similar topics that we examined half a century ago in the great environmental years of 1970-1971.
