Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022 would not be possible without a successful partnership program!

The Cultural Partnerships Program brings together over 71 cultural partners, both from national institutions and from the strong non-governmental sector.

Along with the partners, we are implementing over 127 unique cultural projects that not only Kaunas city and district may be proud of, but entire Europe. In Kaunas, we will present solo exhibitions of Marina Abramovič and Yoko Ono, “The ConTempo” International Festival of Performing Arts, the 13th Biennale of Kaunas, Kaunas Literature Week,  installation of pieces of art “Artery”“, Kaunas International Puppet Theatre Festival, International Choir Festival “Kaunas Cantat” , Children’s Literature and other festivals. Over 10 unique theatre premieres created together with foreign partners.

In the year of this title, we will invite you to visit exclusive performing arts events: a play by Director Robert Wilson “Dorian”, a documentary theatre performance “Taxi”, jazz music spaces of “Kaunas Jazz Stops”, Mirga Gražinytė – Tyla’s and Kaunas State Choir concerts at Pažaislis Music Festival, events of “Auros” dance festival, special programmes of Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra and many more.

We invite cultural organizers to raise bold, ambitious goals and seek premium quality thereby attracting diverse audiences of visitors. “Kaunas 2022” is a huge educational project; therefore, we are learning together new forms of cultural activities during it.
