Why? Of course, Dresden is bursting with architectural treasures, historical art treasures and world-class cultural institutions. And of course we also have a young art landscape, a hip scene culture and glamorous festivals in our city. But is this really enough to be a European Capital of Culture?
At the same time, Dresden is the stage and venue for conflicts and problems. People look at each other critically, argue or don´t see eye to eye. Like many other European cities, the cultural city of Dresden thus faces great challenges.
This is exactly where culture can start. Because culture is music, dance and theatre. But culture also means discussing with one another and shaping coexistence in the city together. It can contribute to meeting current challenges and developing a new culture of togetherness, a new home.
