What’s new in our team?

We enjoyed a summer full of doubled experiences with Kateřina Šedá’s Sobota v nedeľu (Saturday on Sunday) project. All the unique experiences - which aimed to make up for lost pandemic events last year by doubling the fun this year - were created and organised by Trenčín locals in cooperation with our production team. Thank you!

During the summer we were also hard at work answering additional questions from the ECoC jury, and including them in Trenčín’s candidature programme.

The jury is particularly interested in how we’re including the EU aspect in our 2026 programme. Are we going to involve familiar Slovak artists as well as international names, and connect with EU cities, institutions, and media? As you can imagine, the jury came with a notebook full of questions: programme timeframes, topics, and places, about the organiser, if the city and surroundings have enough capacity to accommodate tourists as well as artists. How do we plan to overcome the language barrier so that ECoC visitors can easily get a taxi, hotel, or coffee? The jury is also interested in financing, marketing and outreach.
