Project idea summary: 

We are searching for a EU Partner to implement cultural project. The main idea and goal is to make inhabitants more active in creating or taking part in cultural life of the region. We planned a cycle of 5 workshops (4 implemented by Polish LAGs, 1 by the EU partner) where our participant will learn how to make art, their creativity will be wakened so they will be prepared to make cultural projects in their own societies. Their project will take part in a contest during the project’s grand finale and the authors of the best one will be awarded with the special prize which is a participation in the abroad study visit (to our EU partner’s country). It is possible to include tourism as a part of the project, but the main subject must be culture.


Target group are socially active residents of the LAGs regions. We forecast that the participants will be people working with local societies (eg. Youth center workers) or active local societies members. We would like our participant to influence local societies to work on cultural projects, including youths, seniors, and all rural areas residents.
