Procedure and schedule

The planning process begins with an inventory: what cultural offerings are there in both cities, which associations are active, what cultural events do the citizens like to vistit, what offerings are missing? In order to get a holistic picture, everyone was called upon to participate in the surveys. The results of the stocktaking can be found in the review of the kick-off event.

Four events are planned for the participation process, in which cultural workers, artists, interested citizens and cultural politicians can take part. We look forward to a lively participation!

In 2022, the first two events have already taken place:

Date: October 19, 2022, 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
