In the Central-Eastern Europe, Novi Sad is perceived as an open and exciting city with a number of impressive and internationally recognisable cultural institutions, events and creative minds. This is a city where various European and local identities meet and merge, where old cultural values are constantly revived and new ones created with the support of the international and local public. However, it is also a city that knows it can do more and better. This is why we see our candidacy for the European Capital of Culture as a top platform for joint creative experiment, dialogue and new encounters in the cultural scene of our city, whose devel- opment contours have already being set on that basis. This means that the ECoC Novi Sad 2021 programme proceeds from the broadest concept of culture as a mode of life and expression, from aesthetic behaviour and meeting people’s needs to a model for communication with others and one’s sur- roundings. It encompasses all the horizontal and vertical aspects of culture affecting the quality of urban life, giving a chance to all those who want to become actively involved and creatively participate in the project. In order to make this vision a reality, we have pushed into the background the tra- ditional, institutionally orchestrated access to culture, creating cultural programmes through open, creative communication and new creative platforms. We believe that the demystification of culture is possible only if it comes out into the streets and other public places, if it appears in unexpected locations and among people who are not frequent attenders at elite cultural events.
