Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin, Minister of Culture, in agreement with Martial Alvarez, Mayor of Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, Martine Vassal, President of the metropolis Aix-Marseille-Provence and the Departmental Council of the Bouches-du-Rhône, and Renaud Muselier, President of the Regional Council PACA-Sud, approved the proposal to appoint Pascal Servera to the management of the Citron Jaune, national center of street arts and public space of Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône.

Production director of the Festival international des arts de Bordeaux Métropole (FAB) since 2017, Pascal Servera was previously director of production and artistic and cultural projects at the agency Culture O Centre in Orléans. On each of his posts, he accompanied or deployed projects in public spaces, often reserving a decisive place for the participation of the inhabitants.

Pascal Servera will develop an artistic and cultural project focused on how today’s creation tackles the ecological issue. If the Lemon Yellow will remain a place of accompaniment and reception of the artists, in particular the most emerging, like the young graduates of the FAI AR (Higher education of art in public space), he also wants to make it a place open to the public and to his territory, with strong attention to cultural rights. His project is based on a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder approach. 

He will take office quickly, succeeding Françoise Léger, founder of Citron Jaune, who has asserted her retirement rights. Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin welcomes the firm commitment of the latter, which has succeeded in making Lemon Yellow, with the Ilotopie Company, a place where dialogue between art and science, a pioneer in the consideration of ecology, takes place.
