  • focus on local communities and see culture as a tool for introducing social change
  • want to add an international dimension to their work
  • want to gain new skills to strengthen their local creative activities


  • The organisers will cover costs related to workshops, accommodation and meals. In exceptional, justified cases, they may also consider requests for the participation in travelling costs.

The first phase of workshops will take place in:

  • Kyiv (participants from Belarus, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine): 10th – 13th May 2018
