The Capacity Building Programme of the European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025

In the Capital of Culture, people should be able to become active in their diversity. To make this possible, the European Workshop for Culture and Democracy (Europäische Werkstatt für Kultur und Demokratie) was set up as a flagship project of the European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025 GmbH. With the help of open calls, projects are to be included in the programme for 2025.

In order for an idea to become a concrete project, it needs targeted preparation and support. This is exactly what the networking and capacity-building programme of the European Workshop for Culture and Democracy “What contribution does the Capital of Culture make in Chemnitz?”.

The aim is to connect project makers with European contacts, to start a conversation about project development and to find fellow campaigners and supporters. All those who have submitted projects within the open calls can receive concrete support in implementing their ideas with the help of the Capacity Building Workshop programme.

The programme offers help for self-help so that exciting ideas from Chemnitz and its partners from the region and Europe can become reality.

In concrete terms, a workshop programme is offered that has emerged from the needs of the project participants. Furthermore, public discussion events will be held on overall topics

The workshops and discourse events are supported by the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung.
