Riga and Umeå take the places of Marseille and Kosice as the two European Capitals of Culture for 2014. They will have a year of music, theatre, dance, film and literature events showing their culture to the world.
As an artist, working in another country can provide you with new sources of inspiration. You will gain experience and knowledge and might even expand your audience or start a partnership.
Are there any famous works of art that you would like to see but don’t have the chance to? Now you don’t even have to go to Paris to see the Mona Lisa or to Florence to visit David. Culture was never easier to access!
