The European Capital of Culture office of the state capital Hanover was opened on July 3rd, 2017. And today, October 26th, 2020, we're done. 1,211 days, four worn out coffee machines and countless special moments: That is the balance sheet for the past three years.
We did our best - and on Wednesday we will know whether we have convinced the jury. Because today we had our final presentation. That means 30 minutes in which we presented artistically to the international jury of experts, followed by a 60-minute question-and-answer session.
Like the last jury presentation in December 2019, we did the artistic part, such as the question and answer session, with a ten-person delegation. We chose people who, on the one hand, had a strong impact on the application and, on the other, were able to complement each other well with different skills.
