Grand oral of M28 delegation


On Wednesday, March 1, Montpellier 2028 deputation presented its bid to a European jury. The bid invites us to cultivate a human gesture, that of the imagination, which we want to share.

“Sharing our imaginations” is the meaning of our approach.

Montpellier 2028 and its partners have made the question of the link the epicentre of their artistic reflection, by questioning its three components: the connection to space and territory, the connection to time and the future, and finally the connection to the other. Thank you to all those who contributed to the adventure!

On Friday 3 March, the jury will reveal the names of the pre-selected cities.
