Following the example of the museums of Berlin's Museuminsel or Vienna's Museums Quartier, 11 cultural institutions located around the Chaillot hill have joined forces to form the La Colline des Arts network. Unique in France, La Colline des Arts offers an exceptional concentration of institutions and reminds us that Paris is one of the world's cultural capitals.
This rapprochement affirms the desire to offer better visibility to institutions and is also in line with the future developments that should take place between the Trocadero and the Champ de Mars for the 2024 Olympic Games. The cultural institutions are indeed calling for developments that will allow the public to wander freely and in a renewed setting between their buildings. Most of them are the legacy of the Universal Exhibitions of the early 20th century and bear witness to a common history and urban and architectural coherence.
Museums, theatres, art centres and heritage institutions, dedicated to contemporary art, dance, music, Asian arts, fashion, architecture, the history of man and the sea: the institutions grouped together in this perimeter, which is completely accessible on foot, invite visitors to explore the richness of their collections, their exhibitions, the events and shows that they offer throughout the year and for all audiences. The network thus formed has several objectives:
• Create a new cultural attraction in the west of Paris and to offer a better understanding of their activities to the public
• Promote the multidisciplinary artistic offer and the remarkable architecture of the 11 members to the French and international public
• Organise joint events and annual meetings, such as "L'été sur la Colline" ("Summer on the Hill") on 3 and 4 July 2021
• Create synergies between programmes and to pool resources, particularly with a view to sustainable development and innovation.
