All European countries participate in the European Capital of Culture competition. Some countries have also activated the national competition for cities of culture. The latest is France as we have told here. By the end of the month they will choose the French city, capital of culture for 2022.

 110+ European cultural networks sent an open letter to the EU National Governments today, demanding to include culture in their recovery strategies and reactivate the cultural life in Europe.

The presidents of the Parliament, the Council and the European Commission presented the joint declaration on the conference on the Future of Europe. The Joint Declaration on the Conference on the Future of Europe is very important for European cities and citizens and, in particular, for the European Capital of Culture program. The Declaration, in fact, enhances and strengthens the role of citizens for the dissemination of a European culture that overcomes nationalisms. But the word culture is missing. There is still time to rediscover it.

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.

Light, a metaphor of life and rebirth. But also energy, fire, heat. Perhaps, for these reasons, many European capitals of culture have chosen to dedicate a space of their activities to this theme. Individual actions and artistic works, chapters, but also entire bidbooks are dedicated to light. Let's take a look at some of them.

Lublin (Poland), will be the 2023 European Youth Capital. The news was announced on Saturday, 27 February, by the European Youth Forum.

Exactly one year until the starting shot: the European Capital of Culture Esch2022 will officially open in February 2022. To this end, the southern Luxembourg city of Esch-Alzette has joined  forces with 10 surrounding municipalities in Luxembourg and 8 municipalities in neighboring France, the CCPHVA  (Communauté de Communes Pays Haut Val d'Alzette). 

On March 4th, there will be a cultural competition in which an idea can win € 2026, the same number as the year in which Finland, together with the Slovak Republic, must have the European Capital of Culture.

Becoming a European Capital of Culture does not only mean organizing cultural events throughout the year, highlighting the richness and diversity of cultures in Europe, but above all it means raising the sense of belonging of European citizens to a cultural common space.

The successful path of Matera 2019 and in particular its ability to involve the living strenght of the territory, stimulating the active participation of the public, were the focus of an online meeting dedicated to the teams of the Portuguese cities competing for the title of European capital of culture 2027.

The national jury, composed of 7 personalities appointed by the Minister of Culture and chaired by Bernard Faivre d'Arcier, met to examine the 29 applications submitted by the municipalities or groupings of municipalities for the award of the label “French Capital of Culture” in 2022.

Every year, two countries of the European Union nominate one city for the title of European Capital of Culture, which in 2028 will be hosted by the Czech Republic and France.
