Book published about Umeå’s memorable year as Capital of Culture
Umeå’s year as the European Capital of Culture has now been commemorated as a book. The book, entitled Umeå. Europas kulturhuvudstad 2014 (”Umeå. European Capital of Culture 2014”), was published last Friday and tells the story of one of Umeå’s most memorable years in recent times. The book, which features plenty of pictures, is written mainly in Swedish but each section has a brief summary in English.
“During our year as European Capital of Culture in Umeå in 2014, we showed how much we can achieve if we work together. This book recounts some of the amazing pieces of work, performances and projects that were created and carried out during our year as Capital of Culture,” says Marie-Louise Rönnmark, Chair of the Capital of Culture Committee, and Fredrik Lindegren, Artistic Director of Umeå2014.
The book, which is a part of the documentation that has taken place during the spring, has been printed in 2014 copies and a PDF is available here.
