European Cooperation Days 2018

Friday, September 14, 2018 - 17:56
To honor the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH2018) that was officially launched by the EU Commissioner for Culture, Education and Sport Tibor Navracsis and the Chair of the European Parliament Committee on Culture, Petra Kammerevert last year in Milan, the European cooperation day, has been this year dedicated to the theme:"Painting our future together".

The Central Baltic programme is supporting this initiative by organising events dedicated to cultural heritage and painting across the region thanks to our national Contact Points.

On Åland, we celebrate European Cooperation Day with four different art exhibitions at local restaurants and meeting places.
Each exhibition symbolizes the ECDay logotype based on our cultural heritage. 

Students at Ålands Lyceum have, inspired by their teacher Tanja Reuter-Lindén, designed the ECDay logo by choosing and painting Alandic bridges and gates. The theme is also highlighting the European Year of Cultural Heritage, "The Future has a Long History".
On the 10th of October there will be a joint vernissage with 46 paintings at Ålands Lyceum - and some of these marvellous paintings will also be visible at the Central Baltic Annual Event in Turku in November.
