What’s 99 WAYS?
Kaunas, the second city in Lithuania, is titled to be the European Capital of Culture in the year 2022. Ever since we have this term set – we are constantly looking for fresh ideas that could be done in one of our grand events – Youth Season in 2022. The festival is going to be a co-creative platform for youth around Europe and the whole wide world to gather, explore and discuss the importance of young people being a significant part of the culture in Europe.

99 WAYS is the Summer Camp where ideas from young people could become part of our Capital of Culture program. We are willing to meet you and hear your ideas on what could be the 99 different ways to design a Youth Season that would be worth to visit in 2022. We are willing to explore and search for new forms, mindsets, ways to design a future Youth Season together.
