Experience exchange on project “Spirit of Danube in Port Communities” took place the past two days in Grand Hotel Riga in Ruse. The project is funded by Romania-Bulgaria Cross-border cooperation program 2007-2013, co-funded by the European Fund for Regional Development (ERDF).
Constanta Art Museum is the lead partner; the other partners are Municipality of Ruse through Ruse Art Gallery, and Lower Danube Museum Calarasi.
The main objective of the project is to contribute to cultural and social cohesion at local and cross-border level, in 3 Danubian port-towns – Ruse, Constanta, Calarasi.
Specific objectives are to raise awareness in border port-communities on their local and cross-border development opportunities based on sharing peer trust, interests and backgrounds; dismantling of local and cross-border barriers between local and port communities, as a basic requirement for sustainable development; as well as to increase visibility on the common cultural heritage determined by Danube River in border communities.
The exchange comes as a logical follow-up of the experience exchange which was carried out on 18th and 19th July this year in Constanta. Experts in anthropology, marketing, tourism, ecology, economy and philosophy took part in the meetings.
