Publication of the ARTICLE “Future-Making in the European Capitals of Culture. Rijeka and Nova Gorica Compared”

Jaro Veselinovič and Nevena Škrbić Alempijević published an article titled “Future-Making in the European Capitals of Culture. Rijeka and Nova Gorica Compared” in the scholarly journal Etnološka tribina 56/43, 2023. The article is a part of a thematic session on urban futures.

Abstract:

The article deals with the concept of future-making and its European (i.e., EU) dimension in the context of European Capital of Culture projects. The analysis is based on two case studies – Rijeka 2020 and Nova Gorica 2025. The authors focus on ECoC bid books and other strategic documents that give insight into the desired legacy of the event and the (re) positioning of each city on the cultural and political map of Europe through the transposition of relevant European topics into local contexts. They examine the visions of the anticipated urban development that is hoped to occur as a direct consequence of the project’s implementation.
