The brochure offers examples of projects promoting the mobility of artists, the mobility of works, access by young people to culture and synergies with education, access to our common cultural heritage, digitisation, intercultural dialogue, and creativity and innovation. These themes are of course closely related and most of the projects are therefore multi-dimensional, addressing more than one of these topics. The projects cover a range of sub-sectors and some adopt an inter-disciplinary approach.
Some of the projects were co-funded by the previous programme, which ran from 2000 to 2006, and others are supported by the current programme running from 2007 to 2013. Some have already been completed, while others are still ongoing. Many of the projects were therefore designed before the new policy agenda was conceived. However, as the objectives of the agenda were determined following extensive consultation in order to reflect the priorities of the cultural sector, the majority of projects naturally have close affinities with the agenda.
The brochure has been made to coincide with the first Culture Programme conference to focus on presenting past and on-going project results (Culture 2000 and Culture Programmes) to take place in Brussels 12 December. The aim of the event is to enable exchange of experience and good practice between cultural operators.
