#Ode2Joy social media initiative

Everyone is invited to join the #Ode2Joy Challenge, the social media initiative to celebrate Europe's cultural heritage on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

Let yourself be inspired by the Ode to Joy composed by Ludwig van Beethoven! This famous music has become a symbol of Europe and is the anthem of Europe. 

Perform the original score or create your own version and do this at a heritage site which matters to you: a small parish chapel, a famous historic theatre, a garden in your village, or a museum in your town.

Record your creation and share it via social media from 9 May, Europe Day! Please, do not forget to use the hashtag #Ode2Joy and mention Europa Nostra's social media account (TwitterFacebookInstagramYouTube).

A selection of the most inspiring and creative contributions will be showcased at the European Cultural Heritage Summit (18-24 June) in Berlin.

The promotion of the results of the #Ode2Joy Challenge and new performances/recordings will be run until the end of 2018 & beyond.
