This pre-bid belongs to everyone. Partner local authorities, the Montpellier 2028 association office, its artistic and strategic management, but also artists and residents. More than ever before, we are united by culture!
The Montpellier 2028 Association
The Montpellier bid is supported by the “Montpellier 2028 – European Capital of Culture” association.
Its first board represents all the local authorities involved in the process: Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, the City of Montpellier, the City of Sète, Sète Agglopôle, the Occitanie Region, the Department of Hérault, the Municipal Communities of Vallée de l’Hérault, Pic Saint Loup, Hérault Méditerranée and Pays de Lunel. It therefore demonstrates the commitment of an entire region to this bid.
It also includes a board of associate members made up of the Local Education Authority, the Universities and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Board of Directors represents the driving forces of Montpellier 2028: local authorities, associate members from the economic, educational and cultural sectors, as well as representatives from sponsor boards, urban sustainable development and tourism, all supporting its work.
The association is in charge of steering the project. Its role is to draw up the bid documents, coordinate and lead the projects and partnerships with all involved, determine the objectives and guidelines for the cultural programme, secure the necessary funding and carry out all relevant actions for the bid to succeed.
Adèle Charvet is President, Claire Fita is Vice-President, Max Ponseillé and Frédéric Schlesinger have been appointed Treasurer and Secretary respectively.
