Statement Re: European Capital of Culture 2023

All News / Published on 23rd November 2017

We are aware that DCMS is still in discussions with the European Commission on behalf of all five cities involved and are seeking urgent clarification on the matter. We are, however, deeply disappointed with this recent development but are committed to ensuring that the time, energy, enthusiasm, ideas and resources put into our bid are carried forward regardless. It is still our intention to ensure our cultural ambitions are realised and will be in discussion with DCMS and Derry City and Strabane District Council in the coming days.
