Capitals of Culture post 2019

The European Commission has adopted its proposal for the continuation of the European Capitals of Culture initiative and transmitted it to the European Parliament and the Council. The work on the new proposal has been based on a broad range of inputs. These include the conclusions of the 25 year anniversary conference of the ECoC held in March 2010, four independent evaluations of past Capitals, an independent evaluation of the current selection and monitoring procedures, an on-line consultation, a public consultation meeting and DG EAC’s own experience of coordinating the initiative since 1999.
