The Gateway to Basque
Creativity and Culture

THE GATEWAY TO BASQUE CREATIVITY AND CULTURE

Europeans share a rich cultural heritage from centuries of trade and migration. Linguistic and cultural diversity is one of Europe’s main assets, each of us contributing with our uniqueness.
BASQUE. is a window into a land (the land of Basque or Euskara), a history, a way of seeing the world. It is the expression of a culture proud of its heritage, a people that have learned to embrace difference to create a new vision for tomorrow.
BASQUE. opens a new door to discovering Basque culture through music, dance, theatre, cinema, literature, art… And the Basque language. It is a place to share ideas, build bridges, spark new conversation, and foster dialogue between cultures.
