With the publication of its final reports and “Past Forward”, the project Esch2022 now reaches its formal conclusion. These documents are now being submitted to the European Commission, marking the end of this remarkable cultural initiative.
The officials of the European Capital of Culture project Esch2022 took a phased approach in drawing their conclusions: initially at the closing event in December 2022, then at the torch handover in Athens in January 2023, and finally at a press conference in May, where survey results on audience response were presented. The now published final reports highlight the positive impact of the Capital of Culture on the surrounding regions.
Those interested can download the official evaluation report and the vivid final publication “Past Forward” as a PDF from www.esch2022-impacts.lu or request a printed version via email@example.com. The website also features insightful summaries of the key findings.
Esch2022 Lives On!
“We have developed a new logo to honor the legacy of Esch2022 and invite all project partners to continue using it,” says Nancy Braun, General Director of Esch2022. Many partners are continuing and further developing the projects that began under Esch2022, a proud testament to the lasting impact of this initiative.
In 2024, Bad Ischl (Austria), Tartu (Estonia), and Bodø (Norway) will hold the title of European Capital of Culture.
