The Salling Foundations donates 2 million DKK to the Music City Aarhus 2022
"Music is of great importance to the citizens of Aarhus, and we are very happy to be able to help realize Music City Aarhus 2022's great initiative to gather the city's citizens about music," says Karin Salling, Deputy Chairman of the Salling Foundations
In 2020, 37% of Aarhusians answered, according to a survey prepared by Epinion for Aarhus Municipality, that culture is the most important reason why Aarhus is a good city to live in. During the corona pandemic, cultural life has stood still, and therefore a year of focus on the music helps to mark that Aarhus is a music city with a strong cultural community.
“It is of great importance that the Salling Foundations have chosen to support the realization of the music city year. We are very proud of that, and we see it as a clear indication of the value of the project, ”says Jesper Mardahl, head of the secretariat at Music City Aarhus 2022.
