Press release -

EPISODE 003 - Bal Pop - Les porteurs de projets ont la parole.

Stéphanie Luzi
Leiterin des Jugend- und Kulturzentrum MJC von Villerupt / Directrice de l’ MJC de Villerupt

I am the director of the Villerupt MJC, an association for socio-cultural education which was founded nearly 60 years ago in the town of Villerupt and surrounding region as a bastion of cultural access for everyone.

In the context of the Esch2022, we wanted to put forward a “Bal Pop” project, the idea being to offer the population a festive and convivial initiative, which would, all at once, combine both dancing and music of all genres, as well as all cultures and ages.

Ahead of this socio-cultural event, we would suggest that the population really get fully involved in the project, taking an active part in organising convivial moments of fellowship, cultural exchange, some more traditional, some more contemporary, cultures of all faiths, the idea being to create a social bond amongst us, to operate in a capacity of grassroots unification.

“Remix Culture” for us, it’s really about sharing, cultural exchanges through music, through dance, and through theatre; the idea being to gather together in a celebratory context and have fun all together.

Esch2022 – European Capital of Culture

Esch2022 was the European Capital of Culture 2022, featuring the town of Esch-Alzette, the ten other Luxembourg municipalities of the Pro-Sud union and the eight French municipalities of the CCPHVA region. The slogan of Esch2022 was “Remix Culture”. Production work on the implementation of all of the themes has been carried out in close cooperation with the municipalities, the ministries and other partners. Esch2022 is currently still managed by the association ‘Capitale européenne de la culture 2022 asbl’. In 2022, two other cities in Europe held this title: Kaunas in Lithuania and Novi Sad in Serbia.
