Tandem Fryslan - Creative Embassies - Wytse Dijkstra & Ivana Lucic

Creative Embassies

Our cities and organisations have a lot in common; approximately the same residents, connected to the sea, both Cultural Capital of Europe within two years and both cultural communities with an artistic vision and a mutual dream: a flourishing cultural scene within their own cities. In order to pursue this dream we set up Creative Embassies in both cities to provide an intervention to strengthen the pillars on which the cultural scene will be able to continue growing by itself.
