Eté Indien(s) festival in Arles inspired by the theme "Manger" or in English "Eat"! Eat. Chew. or Devour. The verb evokes, brings together and inspires.

Eating. Nibbling. Feasting. Food brings us together and inspires us.

Launched by photographer Hervé Hôte, the Eté Indien(s) turns art into an unbridled moment of sharing and inspiration, accessible to all. It unites the talents of artists, craftsmen, chefs, painters, musicians, photographers, epicureans, philosophers and visual artists who gather around the "table" to tell their own story.

Strolling through Arles in one will discover the most quirky places, a chapel, galleries, private homes, hotels, squares, restaurants - the festival highlights these artists, but also food, at the heart of the event.

#FOOD side The godmother of the event is none other than Julia Sammut, a former culinary pen, former Fooding ambassador, converted into a new generation grocer in her "Épicerie L’idéal" in Marseille.

She oversees the event with grace, young talents follow suit: the duo of experimental artists Rosa Pilpel, the writer and culinary journalist Ryoko Sekiguchi, the foodie Fabien Vallos, the Michelin-starred Chef Armand Arnal, the Bazar collective & Cie (Café de la Roquette, Palais bookstore, Bazar café and Hôtel Voltaire) or even the twenty or so partner restaurateurs provide 10 days of explosive and local gastronomy, where eating with your fingers and tasting with your eyes is highly recommended!

#ART side

French photography, Sonia Sieff is Eté Indien(s)' Artistic Godmother. The Parisian artist, known and recognized for her nudes and portraits, brings to the festival all the elegance, femininity and

the sensuality of a late summer ... At her side, the panel is prestigious and the disciplines innumerable! Are the following performances and collaborators: Drawing (Iris Marchand, Matt Frenot, Muriel Toulemonde), photography (Studio Anne Leroy, Adrien Sgandurra, Armelle Sèvre, Jonathan Pierredon, Antonin Borgeaud, Hervé Hôte, Cecil Ka), collage (Blandine Chambost), pottery (Emmanuelle Roule), music (Festival Les Sud, Laurent Bernard), projections (Miyu Distribution, Cinegraphies, Armelle & Sophie), plastic arts (Christine Ferrer), painting, ceramics (Jeannie Albert & Leï Saito, La Vaisselle Arlésienne), a plant gallery (L’Arrosoir) and many others...

#DESIGN side

Margaux Keller is the third but not least Godmother. Inspired by the Mediterranean, by Provence and very recently, by the gastronomic universe with her collaboration with Chef Gérald Passedat, the designer and interior architect takes possession of her role of design godmother, to invite to the festival the design in the colors of the South. The Allies duo, led by Chloé Maugard and Iris Marchand, creates unique ceramic creations for the festival, “combining” artistic aesthetics and everyday objects around the table.
