CARTE BLANCHE FOR TOURISM OFFICES – Terre de Camargue destination “Cultural cycle of the Montpellier AT”
In this last quarter of 2023, the Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole Tourist Office celebrates culture in all its forms. A nod to Montpellier’s candidacy for the title of European Capital of Culture 2028, of course, but also an opportunity to highlight an art of living in which culture occupies all its place.
To this end, the Montpellier Tourist Office wanted to mobilize the main tourist offices in the region involved in the CEC2028 adventure, around a “Carte Blanche to OT” cycle.
The principle is simple: open the facilities of the Tourist Office, Place de la Comédie, to offer residents and visitors a day of discovering different territories on the topic of culture.
Meetings, demonstrations, radio, musicals, taste events, workshops, live street art performance, the program promises to be rich, varied and complementary to the image of our territory!
