Having presented 24 shows and activities over the course of the last 3 years, inviting 255 artists and 245 speakers to appear in front of more than a million people in 8 countries, We Are Europe is ready to write a new chapter in its history.
The 8 artistic teams that make up We Are Europe have come together once more, this time to choose its fine selection of 64 personalities from across Europe. The selection of these cultural figures will play a central role in shaping the project’s activities in 2019, in Europe and beyond.
