Galway makes it to European Capital of Culture 2020!!

Noemi's picture

Europe is a strange place. One can feel misery and hopelessness seeing how cities are plagued with division, conflict and death (I am writing this the morning after the attack in Nice). But at the same time one can feel pride seeing people choose to come together to build instead of dismantle.

Galway is such a place right now.

Edgeryders are going to Galway: connecting local projects to global networks in the bid for European Capital of Culture 2020!

Noemi's picture

Galway is a bohemian city on the Western edge of Ireland, with its charm largely underwritten by mythology, nature and language (the Irish name is Gaillimh and means stony [river]). With 75000 inhabitants the City, together with Galway County and the Islands, is currently shortlisted for becoming European Capital of Culture (ECoC) in 2020.

Help and support offered

Hello Galway,

It was great to meet with @NiallOH and Thom as part of the LOTE5 weekend. I'd certainly be interested in offering any support and help to the ECoC bid going forward.

Let me know how i can integrate into your plans. Let's keep this LOTE energy going forward and see if we can get some of that poetry back after the prose of the discussion at the weekend (thanks @jimmytidey for your great phrase)
