Throughout 2018, events putting Europe’s cultural heritage in the spotlight will take place all over Europe. Using the European Year of Cultural Heritage label is your opportunity to contribute to this yearlong celebration.

The European Year of Cultural Heritage label (comprising a logo, a slogan and a hashtag) is available for activities, events and projects taking place between 7 December 2017 (official launch of the year at the European Culture Forum in Milan) and 31 December 2018.

The label is reserved for projects which contribute to achieving one or more of the objectives of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, as endorsed by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU in Article 2 of the legal decision calling for the year.

Does your project share the year’s vision? Apply for the label and leave your mark.

Guidelines for labelling initiatives

Please note that any organisation found using the label without having followed this process will be requested to remove it. Only when a formal permission has been given to a project can the label be used.
