Europa liegt nebenan

Slide The big kick-off event
at Stadthalle Gütersloh
C-City –
Europe is next door
12. - 14. May 2022 Gütersloh . Deutschland

What is C-City? .

The project:
Exchanging, expanding creative ideas and establishing a large network: that is the C-City transnational cultural project – Europe is next door.
No matter how far the distance between two countries, how much their geographical location shapes their cultural identity – they are always connected by one thing: the language of culture.
The Gütersloh initiators of the C-City project were inspired by this bridge-building element. This event with workshops, lectures and excursions will take place in Gütersloh from May 12th to 14th, 2022. A network is to be established in which cultural projects will be implemented annually from 2025 onwards – as individual actions and also simultaneously in different partner cities.

The participants:
All citizens from Gütersloh and the partner cities who would like to support the organisers and C-City: associations, groups, organisations – all are cordially invited.

What is going to happen:
The kick-off conference serves to get to know one another better and to develop ideas for joint projects. From May 12th to 14th, 2022 in Gütersloh – at the latest in 2025, then in a variety of ways and across the whole of Europe: actively or passively, as a member of the audience, analogue or digital. By visiting each other or by using the transmission options of the internet, we experience life without borders and make the principle of thinking outside the box, the norm.
In Gütersloh, the following main topics will be addressed: music, history and customs, sport, food and lifestyle, exhibitions as well as theatre and literature.

The goal:
The idea of “Cultural-City – Europe is next door” will not only give rise to culture that overcomes (language) barriers. C-City is also an active contribution to peace work, because everyone becomes aware of their identity and their responsibility as Europeans.

You can find a detailed description of the C-City idea as a film here and as a brochure here.
