The Camargo Foundation will be taking part in the Automne des Calanques 2023 program organized by the Parc National des Calanques, a long-standing partner.


  • On October 6, the Calanques National Park underwater landscape masterplan will be presented to the public. A landscape plan is based on a shared desire to look together at the future of a site, and to develop a strategy and action plan to feed into the regulatory processes that affect the landscape. This approach marks the desire to combine the challenges of protection and ecological transition with the development and reception of emblematic land and sea areas included in the operation of a port metropolis. Supported by funding from the French Ministry of Ecology, the landscape plan provides a shared basis for management and visitor projects in the natural areas of the National Park. The first underwater masterplan just received a prize from the Landscape Federation. Book your place
  • Another appointment is scheduled for Wednesday, October 25, during our autumn Open Doors Day. On this occasion, you will meet the residents and take part in activities to discover the work of the Foundation and its unique approach to supporting research and creation. Guided tours of the property and gardens with our specialist team members will allow you to immerse yourself in the world of founder Jerome Hill and glimpse the initiatives put in place to ensure the vitality of the site and the continuity of its mission today.
