Thanks to the support of a network of cultural players and the involvement of many large cultural institutions, the city of Lille continues with its initiative, started in 2004, as European Capital of Culture, combining artistic excellence and geographical proximity. Culture is a useful tool not only for developing and promoting the region but is also a necessary condition for living together. For this 7th edition of the LilleMap programme, as part of the wonderful 2015-2016 season, the city’s network of museums and art centres are hosting a number of large exhibitions.
