Samos for European Capital of Culture 2021
In 2021 the title of European Capital of Culture will be awarded to a Greek City. Samos the birthplace of Pythagoras, Aristarchus and Epicurus, is an island of history and natural beauty, a place where science, philosophy and the arts flourished and helped shape our common European Identity and Ideals. In October 2015, Samos will be submitting its bid for European Capital of Culture for the year 2021. Our proposal is centered on the “Pythagorean Theorem of Culture”, a creative re-interpretation of the famous mathematical equation: People² + Creativity² = Culture²
The triangle of Pythagoras thus becomes a triangle of people, of cooperation and creation. Indeed, the leading role in this effort belongs to the volunteers who share the same ideals, on the island and abroad. We kindly ask for your support. With your help we can bring Samos, a small island on the Eastern European frontiers, to the epicenter of Europe’s Cultural Institutions and its people one step closer to realizing their dream.
You too can become a volunteer and share our European dream.
