MARSEILLE-PROVENCE, 2013 EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE What is a European Capital of Culture? A sought-after label The European Capital of Culture is a one-year title awarded to a city or region after an international selection process. Initially created by the European Union in 1985, the title has become extremely sought after. For selected cities, it means increased international visibility over a 12-month period. It has allowed cities off the beaten track, like Lille and Liverpool, to become recognised tourist destinations. Guests of honour: art and culture The aim of the European Capital of Culture programme is to produce a high-quality artistic programme that is accessible to the widest possible audience. This means calling on internationally renowned artists as well as young emerging talents. It will be a unique encounter between local populations, artists, and visitors from all over the world. An unforgettable experience This is an exceptional event for France. The European Capital of Culture rules mean that the title will not be awarded to another French city for the next ten years at least. It’s going to be the event of the decade.
