Several places will be invested over the course of the events: the Tinel de la Chartreuse, the Saint-Pons media library, the cloister of the Collegiate Church, the chapel of the Gray Penitents… Several dates are also assumed at the open-air theater on the hill of Mourgues, which should find its place between art and nature within the cultural life of Villeneuve.
