The RETHINK Folk Music project is an official part of the European Capital of Culture, Aarhus 2017-program.
In 2017, the city of Aarhus, Denmark will be the European Capital of Culture. This means a mayor boost in the cultural landscape of the whole Central Region of Denmark. RETHINK Folk Music is initiated by music schools and museums from these municipalities around Aarhus and the project has made friends and partners all around Europe, as a part of the build-up to Aarhus 2017. In the summer of 2017 the RETHINK Folk Music project will arrange a grand scale folk music festival at Himmelbjerget, which all of these European partners will attend. The festival will be both an informal educational program for the European students and also a variety of public concerts – in the scenic heart of Denmark.
