Culture Open Doors at the Office for European Affairs

There was a discussion about Cross-border Cooperation (CBC) Programmes under the title “Culture Open Doors” at the Office for European Affairs on Friday.

In addition to promoting CBC Programmes, which the Office for European Affairs has been doing in the field by visiting local self-governments in the country, on this occasion a step further was taken, i.e. the discussion about the details was targeted at potential applicants employed in cultural institutions. Thus, support was given to culture, whose institutions deserve full attention and a chance to implement their activities in compliance with EU rules and principles. Among those interested in it were the representatives of the town library of Bečej, different culture and art societies of Vojvodina, NGOs and Cultural Education Centre. Such a manner of consultation on potential applicants’ project proposals is only one in a series of steps within the campaign OPEN DOORS, aimed at promoting CBC Programmes, which are an EU instrument for assisting and promoting cross-border cooperation outside EU borders. The programmes are focused on promoting sustainable development in the region, economic development, cultural values, environmental protection, connecting people and solving common problems in the region through projects.
