Since 1985, the title “European Capital of Culture” has been awarded annually by the European Union. The goal of the European Capitals of Culture is to highlight the diversity of European culture, promote encounters and communicate European values. Cultural aspects of a city, a region or even the entire country are to be made more accessible to the European public.
The title is intended to support sustainable cultural initiatives and contribute to the development of the places through increased national and international attention. To date, more than 60 cities within the European Union have been awarded the title as part of the “European Capital of Culture” initiative, and at least two cities have been awarded the title since 2001.
In 2022, it falls to Esch-sur-Alzette, the second biggest town in Luxemburg, together with the 10 Pro-Sud towns and the 8 French towns that constitute the “Communauté de Communes Pays Haut Val d’Alzette” (CCPHVA) to be the European Capital of Culture.
Esch2022 will bring a programme of major cultural events and exhibitions, tourist and historical activities across the whole region, unique and immersive workshops and experiences and an exceptional opening ceremony, encouraging everyone to participate fully.More information
A REMIXER is someone who is ready to be a volunteer and thus become an ambassador for a large-scale project by actively participating in the events. This will enable him or her to discover what happens backstage and in the wings. The term REMIXER refers to the various themes that run through the Esch2022 programme. REMIX ART, REMIX NATURE, REMIX YOURSELF and REMIX EUROPE. REMIXERS enjoy the unique opportunity to become part of the REMIX community and participate in the future of our region.
