Almost 100 Daugavpilians and Latgalians have already shared their thoughts and video stories about what a common language means to them.

And what does “common language” mean to you?

Become a storyteller and ambassador of Daugavpils and Latgale on the way to the European Capital of Culture!

  • Write to us, draw a picture or even sing, dance and count out ... what does a common language mean to you, which is the "language" that unites you with your friends, Daugavpils, Latgale and the world?
  • Maybe you have your own special creative language of expression?
  • Or maybe you want to support us by dedicating your knowledge, talents or free time to promote the Daugavpils 2027 bid and co-create events to outreach local and international public?

Register as the Ambassador and Volunteer of Daugavpils 2027 and we will find the common language!
