Cultural heritage is not only found in literature and art. It surrounds us in towns and cities, natural landscapes and archaeological sites, in the stories we tell, the food we enjoy, the films we watch… What is more, our heritage has a big role to play in building the future of Europe.
The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
On the official website you can find information about the thousands of activities and events taking place across Europe, resources, and partners involved. Find out what's happening near you and follow the year on social media with #EuropeForCulture.
