The Foundation “Liepāja 2027” is pleased to announce a public tender for the development and implementation of the assessment study for the European Capital of Culture (Liepāja2027). This initiative aims to evaluate the achievement of Liepāja 2027’s objectives and analyse the impact of cultural activities on socio-economic processes in Liepāja, the South Kurzeme region, and Kuldīga.
Scheduled to commence in 2024, the assessment will focus on examining the cultural impact in five key perspectives: cooperation, participation, online involvement, identity, and engagement.
The assessment study will be conducted in two parts, providing a thorough and multifaceted understanding of how cultural initiatives have influenced diverse socio-economic processes, contributing to the development of a sustainable society.
The study seeks to investigate the cultivation of international and mutual cooperation in Liepāja and the surrounding regions (The (un)Rest Land), thanks to the title of the European Capital of Culture 2027. It will explore changes in environmental shaping because of public participation, the impact of digital services on the quality of life for local residents, and the identification and development of elements pertaining to the identity of the (un)Rest Land. Additionally, the study aims to explore the evolution of people’s perceptions of engagement in various societal processes.
A baseline study is slated for 2024, with a comparative study planned for 2027, set to conclude in the first quarter of 2028. All submitted bids will undergo evaluation by a Procurement Committee established by the Foundation “Liepāja 2027.”
