Leeuwarden and Valletta Titled Capitals of Culture

Leeuwarden and Valletta have been named European Capitals of Culture for this year.

The opening celebrations for Valletta will take place from January 14–20 across the city, inspired by the traditional Maltese Feast. The programme for Valetta aims to encourage artists and audiences to rethink the traditional view of culture. About 1,000 local and international artists, curators, performers, workshop leaders, writers, designers, choirs and film-makers will be involved.

In Leeuwarden, celebrations will kick off on January 26–27 with the aim to strengthen and connect communities from across the Friesland region and Europe, with more than 800 projects involving music, theatre, landscape art, opera, and sport taking place throughout the year.
