Wroclaw is the European Capital of Culture in 2016. As part of the Wroclaw-Berlin celebrations, a number of events and projects have been organised that focused on the meeting of these two creative cities and vibrant societies as European neighbours. The cultural and artistic exchange between Berlin and Wroclaw has never been as intense as it is today, and the common experience of the European Capital of Culture opens up the opportunity for an even closer collaboration. In 2016, we celebrated not only the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw, but also the 25th anniversary of the German-Polish Border Treaty and the city partnership between Berlin and Warsaw. The independent, Berlin-based forum for civic responsibility known as Stiftung Zukunft Berlin has joined with Wroclaw – European Capital of Culture and other partners drawn from culture, politics, business, science and sport to draw attention to the current and historically deep-rooted relationship between Wroclaw and Berlin. The event schedule surrounding Wroclaw-Berlin 2016, which included the interactive installation LUNETA, the In Between Festival, a "Culture Train" ("Kulturzug") between Berlin and Wroclaw as well as many exhibitions, club nights, pop-up pavilions, concerts, films and discussions - a number of opportunities to experience the European Capital of Culture in both cities.


An initiative of Stiftung Zukunft Berlin and the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016 in cooperation with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Corporation, the German Federal Cultural Foundation, Kulturprojekte Berlin, LUNETA, Mediapool GmbH and Mica Moca project berlin e.V. With support from LOTTO-Foundation Berlin and the City of Wroclaw.
