The project was realized in 2012-2013 within the framework of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme funded by the European Union. We worked for the South of Ukraine, Georgia and Armenia. The project was directed to support and share the best innovative cultural and creative practices on the basis of traditional cultural institutions – museums of all levels (district, regional, national).
We involved into cooperation nearly 200 public organizations, creative unions, formal and non-formal creative groups, authors and curators, and more than 70 museums, which opened their doors to new initiatives in order to bring a new life to their activities, to attract new audience, to become more open and more attractive for wide public.
During the project we collected, supported by mini-grants and shared through a number of trainings, meetings, conferences best practices of cooperation of museums with NGOs, creative unions, artists and cultural managers, and also commercial (tourist) and governmental organizations. As the result we succeeded to extend access to culture for different social groups; to develop system of non-formal cross-culture education for young people on the base of traditional museums. At a whole this project became the successful example of expansion of multicultural dialogue within the framework of the Eastern Partnership.
