The candidacy to be European Capital of Culture in 2017 is not only aimed at Aarhus, but at the Region Midtjylland and the municipalities as well - which will ensure a close and strong regional collaboration, but also with a national and an international cooperation. An organization - The Secretariat for Aarhus 2017 - has been set up to handle and represent the project until 2012, where it will be decided if Aarhus is granted the title of European Capital of Culture in 2017.

The municipality of Aarhus has already integrated the project into its cultural politics – and the vision is based on the following:

  • Aarhus should be known both nationally and internationally as a strong city of culture having the title of European Capital of Culture in 2017.
  • Aarhus will continuously surprise and dare with unique cultural experiences
  • Aarhus comprehends a rich, creative and experimenting cultural life that dares to be a frontrunner
  • The culture gives Aarhus nerve through cultural diversity, global vision and local insight by using new technology and developing the creative environment and talent development.

The visions for 2017 do not only concern Aarhus but the region as well – where the region is going to play an important part in the execution of the project.
