Watch the Galway2020 video below

As the battle heats up among the various Irish cities to become the European Capital of Culture 2020, Galway has become the first to launch an inspiring bid video in a rallying call to its citizens.

Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture -Together We Can Make This Happen from Galway2020 on Vimeo.

The video calls on Galwegians to come together to collectively reflect upon and celebrate their culture and identity of the city, and those things which make it distinct, while also focusing on re-imagining and creating the Galway of the future. To aid in this, and in keeping with the ethos that this should be a citizen led campaign, a new website,, has been launched to allow the public create their own events, start their own projects, and upload their own stories and news.

The competition among Galway, Dublin, Limerick, and the southeast will reach a critical point in October when a European Jury of 12 individuals will narrow the contest down to the final two.
