The European Capital of Culture programme is designed for the widest possible audience: local residents, visitors, contemporary art fans, music lovers, theatre goers, dance enthusiasts, children, parents, academics and those who do not often take part in cultural activities. To inform, reach out to and mobilise these different groups, MP2013 has signed agreements with media groups.
With extremely wide coverage, these groups will support the project before and during the Capital of Culture year. Our media partners are involved at all levels of the MP2013 project. Not only will they provide information on cultural events in 2013, they will also directly contribute to the programme itself.
In addition to our five main media partners, other groups have taken and will take part in the Capital of Culture project.
Local radio station Radio Grenouille was involved in the project development phase, and will continue to make quality contributions to the programme. The region’s free monthly cultural newspapers, which play a major role in promoting artistic and cultural events, will be given the opportunity to provide in-depth coverage of MP2013’s major projects.
The media partnership programme will give all journalists free and non-exclusive access to information on the MP2013 project.
