Kaunas Full of Culture is a monthly magazine distributed free of charge. Now in its fifth year, the publication is available in both Lithuanian and English. Together with the magazine’s first edition of 2020, the editorial office has just presented the yearbook of 2019. The 200-page book offers last year’s most exciting reads as well as a cultural event agenda for 2020.
As 2020 is the Year of Chiune Sugihara in Lithuania, the magazine’s long-term collaborator Tadas Bujanauskas came up with a minimalist cover illustration dedicated for the Japanese diplomat.
The first half of the yearbook is interviews with artists, activists and other kaunastic people – some of them reside in Kaunas, and some have a special relationship with our city. The second part is a compilation of stories about specific places, objects, or historical events. Each issue of Kaunas Full of Culture is dedicated to a certain topic, so the scope of themes in the yearbook is extensive and at the same time in-depth – inside, you’ll find articles about contemporary art, music, various faiths, small businesses, architecture, urbanism, ecology and other aspects of kaunastic life.
The Kaunas Full of Culture yearbook is distributed free of charge. You can get yourself (or your friend!) a copy in the Kaunas Artists’ House and the Kaunas IN Tourism Information Centre. Both Lithuanian and English editions will also be available at the Vilnius Book Fair and other major cultural events around Lithuania in 2020.
