We are proud to announce the partner of this year's Video challenge "Europe in Harmony", the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. From January 1 to June 30, 2015, the Latvian Presidency will, among other things, offer a rich and exciting cultural programme presenting Latvia as a cultural tourism destination and a source of inspiration, top-class professionalism and cultural achievement. It will be the most extensive worldwide presentation of Latvian culture in recent decades.

The cultural programme will present 6 general themes: the idea of a united Europe; the end of World War II; the road to contemporaneity in professional art; the synthesis of artistic genres and addressing topical societal issues in art; song and dance celebrations on the Amber Road; and engaging the diaspora in the Presidency.

Artists in Europe – Belgium, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, and Germany – and across the world – the USA, Belarus, Russia, China and Ukraine – will bring these themes to life. There will be classical and jazz music concerts, art exhibitions, opera, ballet and theatre performances, a multimedia project, literature readings and cinema days.
