In 2012 Aarhus won the bid for the title of European Capital of Culture 2017. It is not a short term project, but a project which has a far-reaching and ambitious vision for Aarhus as a city involving the entire region. The year 2017 itself will serve as a beacon regarding the development programme for Aarhus and the region, which kicked off in 2013. The overall theme of Aarhus 2017 is “Rethink”.

Central-Denmark is represented by the city of Aarhus in the DC-Network.
