Title: CONNECTING COMMUNITIES THROUGH CREATION OF EUROPEAN CULTURAL CITIZENSHIP
Summary
The project focuses on the role culture and cultural heritage play in creating sustainable society based upon respect for universal human rights, as well as creation of European identity, citizens values and intercultural dialogue, in participating towns: Vodnjan-Dignano and Alberobello. The project emphasizes the role of culture in a way that makes citizens reflect upon the privileges and requirements that come with Europe's shared values, which is especially important in the years of populism, nationalism and protectionism. The goal of the project is, through use of intercultural dialogue, inclusive growth and volunteering, to bring citizens together and reflect upon similar cultural assets (kažuni and trulli) as a base of creation of shared identities & traditions. Emphasize is on the diversity of EU and how to preserve, but also share and cherish cultural heritage, in more globalized European Union; how to really live the EU's motto „United in diversity“. For the partners, culture represents a pillar of European identity which creates new opportunities to connect citizens and regions, create dynamic bottom-up initiatives and foster cross-border co-operation through setting up city-to-city network. With this in mind, the project aims to enhance citizen engagement in cultural activities in line with EU values (European identity and its diversities, intercultural dialogue, mobility). The project includes 50 citizens from Croatia & Italy. The key activities include pre-event workshops, meetings between partners & a 3-day citizen’s event. Via group work and shared events, citizens will form new ties, identify same cultural elements in order to preserve and promote European culture and national, regional, local and individual identity, as well as work in increasing social cohesion. Town twinning itself will be building on the project since it is based on cultural mobility and cooperation based on preserving/promoting culture.
