Abstract: This report starts with an introduction explaining the scope, methodology and the main findings and observations of the analysis over four years. It concludes with overall findings and recommendations. The European Capital of Culture (ECoC) Programme is a much-coveted title that brings with it high expectations for multiple objectives. It offers unique opportunities for cultural visibility, vibrancy and participation. This multi-faceted dimension of the ECoC has attracted a growing body of academic literature and commissioned reports on the subject. O’Callaghan (2012) reflects on the Programme’s unrealistic expectations and deliverables that many cities do not achieve, resulting in alienation (p. 186). However, Garcia and Cox (2013) interpret this as an increase in the standard and ambition of the ECoC. Valletta was selected as the ECoC on 12 October 2012. The Foundation, which spearheaded the application process, has been responsible for the organisation of the ECoC and the creation and implementation of the Cultural Programme. As has been identified in various ECoC evaluations (ECORYS 2012, 2013, 2014; Palmer/Rae 2014a, 2014b) the Cultural Programme is continuously in development and changes are frequent.
