About Us

Urban Mishmash is an expat run website about all the beautiful, little things to do and see in Paris.

Even though Paris is a lovely city, full of art, culture, exciting places to visit and amazing things to do, a lot of it unfortunately gets ‘lost in translation’. For a lot of people living in or visiting Paris, it is often difficult to escape the mainstream and experience the city in an intimate and warm fashion. Urban Mishmash tries to fill this gap by bringing its audience closer to a happier, a more authentic and, hopefully, a slower version of being in Paris.

We love to learn about contemporary and ‘older’ art, and to find out more about French and other cultures. We, thus, write a lot about art exhibitions and cultural events happening in Paris that we have loved, not loved or would love to see. You can find all our articles on art and culture in Paris here.

We love exploring the French capital and finding secret, unusual places to see and offbeat things to do. And, we are really passionate about graffiti and street art. Our Parisian trouvailles and other Parisian photographs can be found on our Instagram.

Finally, we are always interested in hearing stories from other expats, creatives, those involved in small projects or doing something meaningful. You can read our featured Parisian stories and interviews here. If you would like to contribute to our featured stories section, or if you know someone who would, get in touch with us here.
