Cultivating Curiosity is our universal catalyst for cultural change. Through culture we aim to generate genuine care and responsibility, interest and empathy for the world around us. Curiosity is an essential tool for Europe, stimulating the first steps to mutual understanding and promoting creative solidarity.

The title of European Capital of Culture would be a catalyst for Trenčín to become a key cultural hub that brings together sustainable solutions, creative industries, inclusive communities, prototype designs, and innovative minds in both urban and rural settings.

Cultivating Curiosity is a truly shared vision that will move us towards achieving one common goal: to recover the social fabric challenged by the political past, the pandemic present, and the climate future. We simply aspire to inspire our collective better tomorrows by asking questions and seeking solutions today: Cultivating Curiosity by caring to know and daring to do.
