1001 Nights #19 - Sunset at 8:12pm – Letters to Marseille / Closing Weekend

Where we get together to make a magic manuscript of our stories, listen to hip-hop music, and contemplate the most beautiful sunset of 2018...


On a hillside in the north of the city, MARSEILLE is spelled in capital letters, overlooking the neighbourhoods that, if written about at all, are referred to in lower-case letters. An pop-up printing studio will appear overnight, words will spring forth while images and designs blossom across pages. It will be a moment for everyone to create and share stories as they await the final sunset of the 1001 Nights programme…

1001 NIGHTS comes to a close with a view of the sea, at FORESTA and under the letters that spell out Marseille. There will be an open area with a bar, bookshop, and library, musical performances and readings, graphic design workshop, and later a DJ set inspired by Julien Valnet’s book “M.A.R.S: histoires et légendes du hip hop marseillais”.
