  • Quartier Gély’s glittering banquet
    Saturday, September 16 Cancelled
    from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
    Postponed to Wednesday, September 20 at 7:00 pm
    On the occasion of the Maison pour Tous Albertine Sarrazin’s back-to-school party and the European Heritage Days, ADEMASS, the Maison pour Tous and their partners are inviting residents of the Cité Gély and beyond to celebrate the neighborhood’s culinary, festive and solidarity-based cultures.
    The glitter will be in the spotlight for this great shared meal orchestrated by Mike Tiger: circus performances, flamenco dancing, clown acts, photo shoots, a glitter bar and a faceted ball!
    Local residents and associations will be showcasing their culinary culture…
    Bring a dish to share, put on your luminous clothes, and we’ll take care of the rest!
    This banquet will be an opportunity to reflect on the neighborhood’s cultures and dream together of making Cité Gély a cultural capital.

Parc de la Guirlande, Montpellier
open to all – free

The objective of Ademass: to develop a project that respects cultural rights and includes the poorer districts. The potluck-style “artistic banquets”, originally a pretext to get out and meet people, have become the very point of this grand narrative in the making. At the dawn of urgently needed environmental, economic and social change and at a time when the poorer districts are bearing the full brunt of crises, the cultural sector must, more than ever, be the means for uniting people and fostering the emergence of shared narratives.
