European Culture Capital 2024 - for whom and why?

Stage: Demokraatia ala

Why to apply for European Capital of Culture? The 2024 Capital of Culture can again be from Estonia and interest in this title has been shown by Narva, Tartu, Pärnu and Kuressaare. What is the benefit for the local community of being a Culture Capital? What about artists and authors or culture managers? What is the impact of this title before and after the Capital of Culture year? How to involve the community and have good cooperation between authorities as well as at the grass-roots level? What is the impact of the title of the Culture Capital on the region's and state's image in the long term? The earlier experience of being a European Capital of Culture can be shared both by Estonia and the Nordic countries, and we will hear it in the debate.
