The European Capital of Culture 2025 will be colourful, loud, energetic and creative! That much is certain. This is also proven by the record number of 113 micro-projects submitted. So many makers who want to shape their city and the region – the jury had a particularly hard time choosing. But after countless hours of heated debates and smoking heads, a decision has finally been made!

A total of 16 projects were selected and will receive funding.

But we would also like to thank all those who unfortunately were not selected this time. We, as the Team of Chemnitz2025, will be available to answer your questions and help you network.

Some of the selected projects will be realised in the next few weeks and we are looking forward to the first results!
