  • The History of Nantes, France / 法國南特的歷史:

The webinar briefly covered the lengthy history of the city. Nantes was once an ancient port city that was a commercial centre for Roman settlers. From the mid-17th to the mid-19th century, was the first French city to ship African captives in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, being responsible for organizing almost half of the 4,226 slave trade expeditions from France. In the 1920s, the city underwent the first of many urban renewals by filling in the river channels and diverting the waterways away from the city. This move resulted in more accessibility for cars and Feydeau and Gloriette islands became attached to the north bank.

網絡研討會簡要介紹了這座城市的悠久歷史。南特曾經是一個古老的港口城市,羅馬帝國時期是「人民的港口」。從17世紀中葉到19世紀中葉,南特法國第一個在跨大西洋奴隸貿易中,運送非洲俘虜的法國城市,負責組織來自法國4,226次奴隸貿易近一半的考察活動。在1920年代,這座城市經歷了許多城市更新。其中一項就是將河道填補、將水道引流至城市外。這一舉動使汽車行駛更方便,並將 菲多島 (Feydeau)涼亭島Gloriette)與北岸相連。

Nantes then underwent a second shock when France was invaded by German forces in World War II. The air raids from German, American, and British forces nearly destroyed the city, killing over 1700 people and leaving many of the heritage buildings unusable and obliterated. Following the war, Nantes suffered through years of civil unrest. When the shipyards went under in the 1980s, this set off a period of economic depression where part of the city’s identity and many jobs were lost.

  • The Rise of Nantes / 南特的興起

When the city elected Jean-Marc Ayrault in 1989, he declared that to revive Nantes, the city needed to start rehabilitating its reputation on a cultural level. This led to him reaching out to Jean Blaise, the artistic director behind many international public art programmes, for help in breathing new life into the city. From 1990-1995, Blaise created the Les Allumées festival, a five-day-long festival that featured contemporary art, shows, and performances from hundreds of artists from all ends of the world with the purpose of promoting the city of Nantes. The great success of Les Allumées garnered a lot of press from the French media. This exposure contributed greatly to the boost in tourism and set off a series of different projects that would catapult Nantes as a premier destination for culture vultures, history enthusiasts, and art lovers. One of these other projects is the Estuaire, a 60 km long open-air museum that features a collection of 33 artworks that can be seen along 60 kms of the Loire estuary that ends at Saint Nazaire.
