S2017 Application Magazine

Who are we, what are our challenges, and how do we meet them?

This magazine provides some answers. It is Sønderborg for Sønderjylland-Schleswig's application to become European Capital of Culture in 2017.

The application has been underway for two years, during which thousands of inhabitants and other cultural people from both sides of the border have been involved in idea development and focus groups, on which we build our themes and ideas. This process will be expanded. You can follow us here – and feel free to get in touch with your ideas! Can we count on you?
