Exhibition and events series: European Cultural Days
Each year, the European Cultural Days (Europäische Kulturtage) shines the spotlight on a European country, region, or city and presents a small thematic exhibition and comprehensive events programme on the people who live there. The festival lasts roughly four weeks and is organized by the Museum Europäischer Kulturen in bilateral collaboration with various institutions across the continent, including European cultural institutions, societies, communities, and/or the embassies that represent them in Berlin, as well as partner museums in the relevant countries.
The European Cultural Days festival was established in 2000. The series has so far featured Sàmi, Poles, Venetians, Tatars, Estonians, Croatians, Romanians, Sardinians, Apulians, Slovakians and Georgians.
The Cultural Days is an opportunity for the Museum Europäischer Kulturen to enhance its contacts with other partner museums in Europe, while simultaneously offering its visitors the chance to encounter other, often lesser-known ways of life on the continent. As part of an outreach programme held in cooperation with other Berlin institutions during the Cultural Days, people of non-German origin are actively invited to discover the Museum for the first time and to enjoy familiar aspects of life from their home countries. By doing do, the Museum helps foster a positive sense of self in those people and eases their integration in Germany.
