Riga is the European Capital of Culture 2014. This designation and the activities related to the event present a new quality vision of the capital city and entire Latvia's affinity with Europe and the common cultural values.
The Programme of the European Capital of Culture comprises several hundreds of specially-designed events. Over 12 thousand people from almost 100 cultural establishments and non-governmental organisations have been involved in the Programme.
Quite a lot of events have resulted from successful partnership of Latvian and foreign creative groups and will be presented in Riga and Latvia for the first time. The Programme includes cultural events of global and European significance, among them concerts, exhibitions, shows and performances staged by Riga residents in 58 environs of the city.
Force Majeure – this is the name given to the Programme of European Capital of Culture of Riga. Culture as force majeure: via events of various genres and the interplay among different spheres of life Riga aspires to enhance the conviction that culture can change people's lives to the better. Riga is the city of inspiration!
