Following the example of the museums of Berlin's Museuminsel or Vienna's MuseumsQuartier, eleven cultural institutions located around the Chaillot hill have joined forces to form the La Colline des Arts network. Unique in France, it 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 mankind and the navy: the institutions grouped together within this perimeter, which is completely accessible on foot, invite visitors to explore the richness of their collections, their exhibitions, and the events and shows that they offer throughout the year and for all audiences.
The network has several objectives :
• To create a new centre of cultural attraction in the west of Paris and to offer the public a better understanding of their activities
• To 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 Summer on the Hill on 3 and 4 July 2021
• To create synergies between programmes and pool resources, particularly with a view to sustainable development and innovation

The "Printemps sur la Colline" is the third joint event of La Colline des Arts, one of the Parisian districts with the highest concentration of cultural establishments.
For two days, the eleven institutions of La Colline des Arts have come up with a rich and diversified programme. The family public is invited to take part in singing and creative workshops, to take a walk to learn about the history of fashion in the district, to follow performances, or to meditate to discover the works in a different way. The diversity of the cultural offer will allow an opening and an echo to a large public.
During the weekend, the public will be able to benefit from a reduced rate in certain establishments of La Colline des Arts on presentation of an admission ticket dated 21 or 22 May.
At the Palais Galliera, the public can discover the exhibition "Love Brings Love. Le défilé hommage à Alber Elbaz" (programmed until 10 July 2022) and the exhibition "Une histoire de la mode. Collecting and exhibiting at the Palais Galliera" (the second exhibition will be presented until 26 June 2022).
