Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 606313-CITIZ-1-2018-2-HR-CITIZ-TT
Title: C via C - Connecting citizens and towns Via Culture for inclusive growth
Summary
The project focuses on the role culture plays in creating inclusive growth and European identity in towns & emphasizes the EU’s role in enhancing cultural activities locally (in line w/the European year of Cultural Heritage). The project promotes key EU values that preserve culture and that also bring citizens together (intercultural dialogue, volunteering, inclusive growth). It will also address misconceptions relating to cultural activities and aims to engage youth in CSO actions. Many citizens in the partner regions view culture as important, but misunderstand how it drives employment & growth and lack formal cooperation with other citizens (& know-how) in promoting cultural assets (textiles, ceramics, arts, etc.). This threatens efforts to preserve local identities & traditions. For the partners, culture represents new opportunities to connect citizens and regions, create conditions for inclusion and promote sustainable development. With this in mind, the project aims to enhance citizen engagement in cultural activities in line with EU values (volunteering, intercultural dialogue, inclusive growth) and enhance cooperation between towns in their efforts to preserve/promote cultural heritage. The project includes 184 citizens from Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia & Serbia. The key activities include pre-event workshops, meetings b/w partners & a 3-day event (presentations, panel discussion, cultural quiz, 2 workshops w/group activities to enhance cooperation, press conference). Via group work, interactions, scenario-based learning and other activities, citizens will form new ties, create guidelines for branding culture & actions promoting culture. Pre-workshops & meetings b/w partners ensure citizen inputs are included & activities are refined to stakeholders' needs. The network agreement and guidelines document (on branding) build on the project since it ensures that further exchanges and actions take place between partners regarding preserving/promoting culture.
