European Capitals of Culture 2017

Nikola Benin

Aarhus (Denmark) and Pafos (Cyprus) take the places of San Sebastian and Wroclaw as the two European Capitals of Culture for 2016.

Every corner of Pafos -parks, streets, neighbourhoods and beaches will be converted into an outdoor cultural hall. Based on the ‘Open Air Factory’ concept, it aims to show how it can contribute to the European cultural scene with innovation, creativity and a desire to evolve from the past, while simultaneously advancing towards the future. Pafos has always been at the crossroad of the Eastern Mediterranean and through its modern multicultural reality now it will be the first European Capital of Culture, which will link East and West.

With the main theme ‘Rethink’, Aarhus wants to underline the challenge that cities are facing nowadays, which demand rethinking, redesigning, reconnecting and rebuilding culture and infrastructure. With the aim of creating sustainable solutions, Aarhus will search for new concepts of growth. Throughout 2017 will be focus in the themes of liveability, gastronomy, nature, sport and play, history, belief and generations.
