The best ideas have a good chance to make it to the Tartu European Capital of Culture bid book which is compiled by autumn.
BID BOOK BASED ON IDEAS AND THE CULTURAL PROFILE OF TARTU
To become an European Capital of Culture (ECoC) Tartu has to compile and submit a bid book setting out its objectives, programme, financing plan etc.
It is a 100 pages long document that has to be represented to a group of independent experts (the panel) who assess bids, make recommendations on shortlisting and final selection in the end of 2019.
Tartu has started early: already 150+ meetings and 15+ roundtables have taken place by the end of January 2018 in the context of Tartu 2024, involving different stakeholders in the city (literature, students, contemporary art, theatre festivals, ICT sector etc.). All that to ensure that all the best ideas from as many people in Tartu as possible are collected together.
Please do not hesitate to submit your idea by visting us in our Office (Raekoja plats 12, Tartu) or by sending an email. You are very welcome!
Tartu 2024 team also continues collecting the ideas in the frame of a sustainable Cultural Strategy 2030 (KU30) that will be taken to the City Council in the summer or 2018.
