On Tuesday 21st December, Michaël Delafosse, Mayor of the City of Montpellier and President of Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, officially submitted the Montpellier 2028 bid to the Ministry of Culture. The M28 bidbook was submitted on behalf of all the members of the “Montpellier 2028 – European Capital of Culture” association.
The event was marked by a convivial aperitif at the Hôtel d’Aurès, the former music conservatory of Montpellier, which is now the headquarters for the bid.
All the representatives of the partner local authorities as well as the founding patrons were present to celebrate this first stage of printing and submitting the bidbook to which everyone had contributed.
This collegial bid was prepared and drawn up with and for the inhabitants. We look forward to sharing the fruits of their valuable contributions and the new projects for 2023!
