After Antwerp, Brussels and Bruges, Mons, the cultural capital of Wallonia, a city of heritage and design, a firm member of several cross-border and European partnerships, is playing the card of “Créaffectivité”, new technologies, and sustainable development dedicated by its contract with the future.
“Créaffectivité” is the thread linking all the projects marking the route to 2015. It consists of binding closely together the concepts of creation, creativity, in the most innovative sense of the word, with those of affectivity, solidarity, and active participation by the citizens.
The new technologies linked with art will also structure the 2015 projects, like the walkway signed by the architect Santiago Calatrava which, above the station, will link the two sides of Mons, its heritage, and its future development.
Finally, this project will be a long journey: new infrastructures already opened in Mons, in particular the Théâtre du Manège (classified by the newspapers Le Soir and De Standaard as the best architectural building of the French-speaking community) and the BAM/Beaux-Arts Mons.
In addition, the projects we will be developing in Mons, as well as with our partners in Hainaut and the French and Flemish communities of Nord/Pas-de-Calais, all have a stake in the sustainable restructuring of Mons over time.
