The Upernoir festival offers unexpected events around the Louvre-Lens. Throughout the month of June, the public will have the opportunity to enjoy various experiences based on the colour black. Culinary excursions, tourist bike rides near the slag heaps and in the mining basin, painting exhibitions, night-time discoveries of sites of interest, etc. If the North has often been seen as a black and dull region, the festival team has decided to play with this cliché to make artistic or gastronomic tours, and to make people understand that in the North, this colour is associated with its history, its industry, its singularity and its aesthetics.
