Eleusis 2021 European Capital of Culture

In November 2016, the Greek city of Eleusis has been designated European Capital of Culture 2021. The central idea of the Eleusis 2021 cultural programme is expressed by the moto "Transition to EUphoria". The proposal of Eleusis focused on the question of sustainable development at social, environmental and economic/labour level: Eleusis becomes a laboratory to rethink the content and meaning of sustainable development. These three categories correspond to the three main themes of our programme: EUrbanization for the social challenges, The EU Working Classes for the economic / labour challenges and EUnvironment for the environmental challenges. The Festival Academy is one of Eleusis 2021 strategic partners for the Culture 2030 programme that is focusing on the capacity building of the professionals of the cultural field.
