Towards the European Capital of Culture
Tampere and the Tampere Region are applying to become the European Capital of Culture 2026, in order to promote what is most important to us: The people. We want to permanently enhance the quality of life and equality of our residents and use culture as our engine for change.
Tampere and the Tampere Region are together applying to become the European Capital of Culture in 2026 and we want YOU to join!
Culture means connections between people. In our daily lives, we can all be part of the Capital of Culture project – because the community is us. It is time to share our culture, art, industrial history, and natural and environmental values.
