European Capital of Culture 2018: BrabantStad

The initiative of European Capital of Culture has become one of the most high-profile cultural events in Europe and it provides living proof of the richness and diversity of culture on the continent. More than 40 cities have been ECoC so far but you probably think now; why is this interesting for your project?

Well, five cities in Brabant – Breda, Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Helmond & Tilburg – are nominated to become European Capital of Culture 2018! This initiative is called BrabantStad and it is defined as a competitive and sustainable developing urban network. The nominated cities are not only selected on their current situation but also on their plans for the future. BrabantStad has set up 6 goals for the future:

1. Balance between urban and green

2. Sustainable and environmental friendly region

3. High quality cultural, sports and economic facilities

4. Leading knowledge and innovation region of Europe

5. Internal and external accessibility

6. BrabantStad, a strong network.

Below you can find the English Promo video of BrabantStad:

In relation to this project, visual culture is playing an important role within Brabantstad  This specific notion of art is the upcoming trend in Breda and its surroundings and encompasses the phenomenon of images in every medium – be it advertising, film or paintings. So actually, the visual culture of Brabant will be influenced by the candidacy of European Capital of Culture. Keep an eye on this blog if you want to find out more!
