LUBLIN 2029 RE:UNION

European Capital of Culture Candidate

Lublin is one of the four cities shortlisted in the prestigious competition for the title of the European Capital of Culture 2029.

WHAT IS THE ECOC?

Lublin is one of the four cities shortlisted in the prestigious competition for the title of the European Capital of Culture 2029. A panel of international experts rated our city’s application as one of the best. Being shortlisted alone is a significant achievement. Winning the title, in turn, can result in a wide range of positive changes, bringing about cultural but also social and economic benefits for the city. So, what exactly is the European Capitals of Culture competition?

WHY LUBLIN?

The first application submitted by Lublin secured a place on the shortlist of the competition for the title of European Capital of Culture 2029. Currently, work is underway to create a revised, more detailed application. This will constitute the basis, along with study visits, and the final hearings for the panel members to choose the winning city.

IDEA OF RE:UNION

The motto reflects the idea of Lublin’s application for the title of European Capital of Culture 2029. For Lublin, the historical perspective is only a starting point to revise the concept of a union in the current and future conditions.

  •  reintegration as a natural counteraction to the disintegration caused by the pandemic, crisis, and war
  • increase in the quality, intensity, and frequency of interpersonal contacts
  • accepting multiple value systems, norms, and assessments while recognizing their common points
  • a new social contract where everyone feels, and is important
  • building a real community
  • a dialogue between various fields of art, cultures, generations, tradition, and modernity; the past and the future.
  • a union of entities under a single banner and idea
  • a meeting
