Die Kulturhauptstadt - ein erfolgreiches Konzept

Inspired by and based on the concept of the European Capitals of Culture, a major cultural event should take place regularly in Switzerland: the Swiss Capital of Culture.

Every three years, a Swiss city becomes the country's ephemeral cultural capital. It organises major cultural events that are part of a wider territorial reflection.

Connecting. Diverse. Strengthening.

Organised on a regular basis, such an event promotes participation, encounters, exchange locally, regionally and nationally and across language borders, the transfer of skills and knowledge and is interdisciplinary.

New networks are created, innovation and creativity are promoted.

Culture acts as a driving force for many and for all. And thus contributes to strengthening national cohesion.
