Riga, Latvia officially starts its
European Capital of Culture programme

Riga has officially become the European Capital of Culture in 2014. The opening weekend of the Riga 2014 programme passed with a grand array of festivities and creative events all over the capital of Latvia.

More than 14 000 people participated in the Chain of Book Lovers campaign in the afternoon of January 18 to move over 2000 books, from hand to hand, from the old building of the Latvian National Library to its new one, the striking structure called Castle of Light. Despite temperatures of -12°C, the campaign gathered more people than expected, with spectators and passersby joining the chain. The positive atmosphere remained constant for all five hours of the 2014 m long chain.

The Riga Central Market and its pavilions presented the opportunity to “taste” the entire 2014 programme, filled with video installations, live music, choirs and theatrical performances. Each of the market’s four pavilions were transformed to represent a different chapter of the Riga 2014 programme, while the International Coach Station next to the market became a stage for a piano concert of Bach’s best known pieces by famous Latvian pianists.

Meanwhile, several exhibitions were also unveiled during the opening programme, including; Amber Through the Ages, from geology of the gem to its use in technology, 1914, showing the impact of WW1 on culture as interpreted by artists in the countries which were born as a result of the war and the video documentation Entre Temps (between time) and creative project Archives du Coeur (archive of heartbeats), in which every visitor will have the chance to participate by renowned French artist Christian Boltanski.

The World Fire Sculpture Championship provided for an unforgettable show as participants from 12 countries competed with each other, setting their amazing wooden sculptures ablaze. The evening’s grand finale at the banks of river Daugava right in the heart of Riga undisputedly was the musical light show with fireworks. The closing event of the day was the concert RīgaDimd! (Riga Resounds) in Arena Riga, featuring famous Latvian artists in a mix of classical, folk, pop and choir music.

Riga will continue hosting cultural events of the highest class throughout the year 2014, which will not only be contained in the premises of theatres, the opera, showrooms and the like, but also in Riga’s vast and versatile neighborhoods.

The 26th Estonian song celebration and 19th dance celebration
“Touched by time. The time to touch”
(4-6/07/2014, Tallinn, Estonia)

This is the story of time manifesting itself in our ancestors’ heritage and us shaping our time through our own touches, contacts, caresses and impacts.

Song and dance celebrations are an old and very important tradition for Estonia and Estonians (the first song celebration took place in 1869 and the first dance celebration in 1934) and these celebrations are nowadays held every five years. In 2003 our tradition of song and dance celebrations was entered to UNESCO’s List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Ticket sales will begin on February 1, 2014.
