The Rhodes Project SCE provided research and support services for the candidacy of Rhodes for European Capital of Culture 2021.
The institution of the European Capital of Culture is an EU action for promoting diversity, the common aspects of European cultures and mutual understanding between European citizens.
The “Journey to the Light” vision for the candidacy of Rhodes island encapsulated transforming the island and the Dodecanese into a platform that nurtures creativity. The aim was to inform the peoples of Europe and the world in a broader aspect about the power of artistic content and the gravity of sustainable development; to inspire and include them in a meaningful discussion about the challenges all of us currently face.
Insularity has shaped our Dodecanesian multicultural community through the essential participation in European history. It is our geographical position that makes our program the ideal framework for dialogue between the East and the West. This dialogue could be our program’s legacy.
