Belfast City Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council have agreed to develop a joint bid to become the UK’s nominated host city for the European Capital of Culture in 2023.

If successful, the cities will host a year-long programme of events that will showcase both cities and the region resulting in huge benefits.

The European Capital of Culture Bid is about everyone in Northern Ireland. To help shape the vision and themes of the bid, share your views in by answering the five questions in the survey:

  1. What makes you happy?
  2. What keeps you awake at night?
  3. What does "home" mean to you?
  4. What colour makes you think of home?
  5. Describe an object that represents your dreams for arts and culture here.
