Katowice and the Upper Silesian Metropolis are bidding for the title of European Capital of Culture 2029.
This is a great opportunity.
The interest of the whole of Europe is focused on the European Capital of Culture. The awarded city strengthens its international image and benefits from increased tourism.
However, the European Capital of Culture primarily serves the citizens. It creates a new, attractive cultural offer for them. Through cultural and social projects, it is helping to solve problems and facing the challenges of the future.
Katowice’s aim is to win the title for the entire Upper Silesian and Zagłębie Metropolis, i.e. 41 cities and municipalities in the GZM. Culture can become one of the most important factors in building a common metropolitan consciousness – strengthening bonds and bridging divides.
It will be a candidate that grows out of the idea of sustainable development and is oriented towards ecological solutions. Above all, however, it will be based on the conviction that culture serves to deepen social cohesion.
Let us together create Katowice’s and the Upper Silesian Metropolis’s candidature for the title of European Capital of Culture 2029!
