In 2026 the title of European Capital of Culture will be assigned to Oulu, in Finland, and to a Slovak city. Nitra, Trenčín and Žilina- Beskids are the three cities shortlisted in the competition in Slovakia. The winning city is expected to be announced in December 2021. In meantime, let’s discover the projects concepts the three cities are working on.

The Asd Cultura e Sport Matera is an association from Matera, European Capital of culture 2019. They are submitting an application for the next call of the ERASMUS + SPORT program with the aim of promoting physical activity through European Traditional Sports and Games (ETSG).

Today begins a series of interviews with the leading experts of the European Capitals of Culture.
The first one is with Steve Green. Green was appointed Chairman of the European Commission jury to select the European Capital of Culture from 2011 to 2016 and main author of the Guide to Candidates issued by the European Commission.

The Capacity Building for European Capitals of Culture project , launched in 2019 and funded by the European Union, offers professionals from a range of disciplines the opportunity to be part of a European database gathering a pool of experts to provide training and capacity-building services, in specific areas of interest and relevance, to designated upcoming European Capitals of Culture.

European capital of culture is woman. Always. And not only because capital is a feminine noun, but also because the mother of this competition is Melina Mercouri.
