Leeuwarden-Friesland 2018 Cultural Capital of Europe

For 2018, Leeuwarden is one of the two European cities selected to be European Capital of Culture. But it’s not just a Frisian celebration; Leeuwarden-Friesland Cultural Capital of Europe 2018 is a national Dutch event with as epicentre Leeuwarden and the province of Friesland.

The "iepen mienskip" - open community - is the theme of our programme: Leeuwarden-Friesland 2018 With more than 800 projects, we will show an open community to the Netherlands and the rest of Europe in 2018; an idiosyncratic and committed community sensitive to and curious about each other’s ideas, opportunities and challenges. By showing our cultural credentials in 2018, we want to connect with different communities across Europe.Both online and ‘in real life’.
