Compostela (2000) -
Compostela 2000 was integrated in the public Consortium of the City of Santiago, with three administrations participating: the national government, the autonomous government, and the municipality. The president of the Consortium was the Mayor of Santiago. Other members included:
- representatives of the Ministries of Economy, Education and Culture;
- representatives of the Cultural Advisor of the Autonomous Government of Galicia;
- Delegate Advisor for the cultural project Compostela 2000.
The administrative body was the Executive Committee composed of the City’s Mayor (or his representative) and the Cultural Advisor of the Autonomous Government of Galicia (or his representative).
The Santiago de Compostella Office was directed by Xerardo Estévez Fernández. The Office team was responsible for coordinating events in the year 2000. Unlike in other cities, the Vice-President for Culture, Teresa Garcia Sabell, was directly involved in the selection of projects and the whole concept-forming process for the cultural programme. Promotion and foreign contacts under the European City of Culture 2000 scheme were directly controlled by the Municipal Office for Promotion and Foreign Contacts of Santiago de Compostela.
