Piran2025 bidding for the European Capital of Culture title for 2025

It is a huge pleasure to be working with the ECoC candidate bidding team as the Cultural Coordinator during 2019 and 2020. The artists, the organisations, the team and the topics - they all make a real and needed Wave of Change

On 27 February 2020 at their meeting in Ljubljana (Slovenia) the European Capital of Culture selection jury shortlisted Piran2025 and its programme for the final round for the prize in 2025. #WaveofChange is the moto of the second bid book.

It is a huge pleasure to be working with this team and region as cultural coordinator of the Piran-Pirno bid, putting together the energy of four municipalities: Piran-Pirano, Izola-Isola, Koper-Capodistria, Ankaran-Ancarano.
