Tandem Cultural Capitals

Winning the European Capital of Culture title puts the cultural scene of cities and regions in the European spotlight. Professionalising international networking, enabling local players to cooperate on European level and sharing know-how, is an important part in the programme - before, during but also after this specific year. Tandem Cultural Capitals brings together cultural professionals from eight European Capitals of Culture of the past and future, in order to facilitate, renew and strengthen this central strategic dimension.
