Contemporary Capital is the slogan used by Kaunas for seeking the title of the European Capital of Culture for the year 2022. We try to involve each resident of Kaunas, wherever he/she lives, in the creation of a happy city full of creative freedom, scientific innovation and the tempo of contemporary culture. Let’s open Kaunas to Europe and Europe to Kaunas together!
The title of the European Capital of Culture for the year 2022 will be granted to one of the candidate cities of Lithuania. This is a unique opportunity for the city and its residents to find, strengthen and establish a new identity through the creation of culture and active participation: to highlight advantages, to discover and create traditions, to become satisfied with yourself, neighbours and your city, to open up to Europe and to discover Europe in yourself. In light of so many inspiring examples, we are determined to seek the title of the European Capital of Culture. This project is intended for each resident of the city and guests from Europe and all over the world. The entire community of the city is involved in its development and implementation, and the title helps to attract investment, create long-term jobs, increase the flow of tourists several times in the long-term perspective, re-enter the city into the list of the European points of interest, and moreover, raise the self-worth of the residents of the city, encouraging the youth to stay after graduation from their studies and to create their own surroundings, while generating emotional and economic benefits.
We invite cultural operators, organizations and persons to contribute their ideas and proposals for development of the European Capital of Culture programme. Please fill in the questionnaire and send it by e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may become a sponsor of Kaunas as the European Capital of Culture. We invite business enterprises and persons willing to accept commercial offers to apply to us.
