The very first Eastern Partnership Ministerial Conference on Culture is foreseen to take place on 27-28 June 2013 in Tbilisi, Georgia. It will give guidance for future work and provide an occasion for a mid-term assessment of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme.
The high level event will represent an important milestone in the cultural dimension of the Eastern Partnership, a press release said. A limited number of places will be opened up for online registration in a few weeks' time on the Programme’s website.
The €12 million Eastern Partnership Culture Programme aims at assisting the Partner Countries in their cultural policy reform at government level, as well as capacity building and improving professionalism of cultural operators in the region. It seeks to strengthen regional cultural links and dialogue within the Eastern Partnership region, and between the EU and ENP Eastern countries' cultural networks and actors.
