Presentation - Effervescences

Effervescences is a major cultural dynamic that is set to gain momentum over the next few years. Through artistic and festive events and joint projects, Effervescences is paving the way for Clermont-Ferrand’s 2022 application for the title of European Capital of Culture (a French city will be selected for 2028).

The aim of Effervescences is to provide new perspectives and insights that highlight our daily environment, in order to experience the city in a new way.

Bringing creativity and liveliness to our region, while also sharing and working together... The idea is to promote cultural vitality in Clermont-Ferrand by empowering everyone – local population, young people, as well as cultural, economic and social stakeholders – to discover their place.

A major, five-year-long shared adventure that will follow in the footsteps of the launch weekend that took place the 6th, 7th and 8th October 2017.


Key figures from the launch week-end:

→ over 50,000 visitors

→ 390 local, French and international artists

→ 40 locations (including Hôtel-Dieu, Montjuzet park and several municipalities affiliated with the Metropolis)
