The call #Ode2Joy Challenge

25 May 2018

On the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, Europa Nostra and its President Maestro Plácido Domingo invite all citizens in Europe and beyond to contribute to the #Ode2Joy Challenge. Supported by Ambassadors such as the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO), the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy in Budapest (Hungary) and the BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels (Belgium), this participatory initiative celebrates Europe through our common cultural heritage. It seeks to unlock creativity and encourage participants to make an “#Ode2Europe” as a humanistic and cultural project, based on shared values, history & heritage.

Several civil society initiatives have already been scheduled to contribute to the #Ode2Joy Challenge, such as, among others, a performance of the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir at UNESCO World Heritage Site Brú na Bóinne in Ireland and choreographies filmed at industrial heritage sites across Europe in the frame of the ERIH “Work It Out” event.
