European Month of Culture
Now in its 7th year, the “European Month of Culture” highlights the diverse cultures of the European Union Member States. Musical performances, art exhibits and tours, film screenings,and lectures take place at the National Gallery of Art, the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, Folger Shakespeare Library, NYU Washington, Dumbarton Oaks, EU Embassies, EU Cultural Institutes, and other venues.
To many people the European Union may seem like an abstract idea; yet, there is no better way to illustrate the European ideal of joining forces, than to combine the rich heritage of each country into a month of cultural offerings. These events radiate out from Europe Day (May 9), which commemorates the historic Declaration that led to the formation of the EU. “United in Diversity”, the EU motto, is exemplified beautifully by the talents of the many artists who offer their gifts to the Washington community and visitors.Read more
