European Capital of Culture 2024: Bodø Takes the Stage

European Capital of Culture 2024: Bodø Takes the Stage

In 1985, the European Union (EU) launched the Capital of Culture Program to bring Europeans closer together. The first city chosen was Athens, Greece, followed by Bergen in 2000 and Stavanger in 2008 in Norway.

Now, in 2024, Bodø joins Tartu, Estonia, and Bad Ischl, Austria, as the European Capital of Culture. With the theme "Articulation," Bodø becomes the first city north of the Arctic Circle to receive this honor, promising an array of cultural events—over 1,000 in total—across Northern Norway.

Exciting programs include "European Cabins of Culture," a 21-day hike featuring arts and culture, and "Who Owns the Wind," a captivating theatre trilogy by the South Sami Theatre.

Despite concerns about a storm, Bodø's opening ceremony went ahead as planned on a floating stage in the harbor. Queen Sonia attended, praising the event as "impressive" and emphasizing its importance during times of unity.

For more information, If you attend this fantastic celebration, we'd love to hear your stories and see your photos in the comments. Let's celebrate Bodø's moment in the spotlight and the richness of culture it brings to Northern Norway.
