Going through the main NS forums, I came across this topic by the people of Rushmore. It describes their setup for electing a "capital of culture". https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=287463

And here are some other, RL examples as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_of_Culture


I am sure we could institute something similar. Who here is interested?

While a monthly update seems perhaps too much for our region, perhaps 2-3 months is a better rhythm?

I think this is an interesting idea.The city doesn't need to be a capital, right? There are other, smaller cities that deserve equal attention. For Magneus the city of N?mchen is very h?bsch.



You and I both have already been nominated for featured nation. So that would exclude us from being capital of culture.

Talked about this on Discord earlier tonight. Some thoughts.

Timing. Make it a recurring item. Elect a new city every 6 months. Keep some cities in reserve. A rotational system is also proposed.

Activity. If you put a city forward, you commit to explaining something about your nation's culture. Art, history, people, events, etc. I'd go for a minimum of 3 articles about your culture.

@Orioni Dude when did you go to bed? It was half past two in the morning when I left. How long did you and @Iverica continue chatting?

Not too late, I think. Switched off around 5AM. Stopped reading at 6AM. Woke up at 10AM.

Why not have something like the World Expo?

World Expo is certainly possible, if you find enough interesting. It's a similar to this idea of a rotating culture capital.

I'd take part in this. It sounds right inline with Adapton national identity, so it would make sense for Adaptus to put forward a city. 

I've lived in two cities which have fought for both the UK capital of culture, and European Capital of Culture (Gateshead/Newcastle and Sunderland). So I'm somewhat familiar with the process.
