This is the story of where we are now.
When we started working on Projekt Europa almost four years ago, it sometimes felt like the idea was an enormous mountain we had set out to climb, where the opening night of Europeana on 16 April 2020 was our equivalent of reaching base camp.
Of course back then, right at the start, we didn’t even know Europeana was going to be part of the season. The entire season was just an idea – as intangible and unpredictable as ideas often are. Reaching the summit was a gamble, and risk is the only thing you could count on.
As we went on, the intangible became more real. More and more brilliant, inspirational artists joined us in creating Projekt Europa – actors, writers, directors, designers, musicians - investing in this expansive, hopeful idea, lending their imagination and creativity to the notion of something that didn’t yet exist but which would, at some point, become our reality.
