July 2004 - River Renaissance

Mention the word “river” in relation to Paris, and people inevitably think of the Seine. Few know about the Bièvre, another river that played an important role in the history of the city. A project is underway to uncover several kilometers of this river. A coalition of 35 associations, committees, school organizations and syndicates are working together to make this happen. And as part of the campaign to raise awareness of their efforts, coalition members are sponsoring annual cultural events. One of the most interesting of these members is Lezarts de la Bièvre, an association that promotes contemporary artists whose studios are located in the vicinity of the river.
