What a long way we’ve come since the first Swing Art Festival in 2008.
Kathereen & Maxim, the passionate founders of the Swingtime Bordeaux association and of the Swing Art Festival are proud to see the event develop every year.
First it was a local gathering, but the event has become THE swing week-end you don’t want to miss, attracting more and more international swing dancers.
Swing Art is not only a dance week-end but also a state of mind: friendliness, à wild atmosphere and a will to create and exchange with professional artists, amateurs and audience. Everyone is invited to have fun. Swing Art is also an amazing gathering around swing of artists from various backgrounds, that take place, thanks to Bordeaux’s City Hall, in the Halle des Chartrons, a historical building that has become a major venue in Bordeaux’s cultural life.
Located in one of the oldest district of Bordeaux, famous for its bric-a-brac shops, its antique stores and art workshops…an perfect environment to taste culinary specialties and wines from our region, but also to discover, in between two triple-steps, a very complete program of artistic and cultural activities about swing: conference, photo exhibitions about Jazz & Blues, painting exhibition with GALI the painter (Drouot), an art and vintage market, a circus show, antique cars and old motorbikes, a plastic art workshop, musical activities and a many other surprises to be discovered in La Halle during the festival...The 10 years anniversary deserve a huge celebration !
