Southeast European Network of Cultural Centres
ENCC member Trešnjevka Cultural Centre from Zagreb, Croatia recently formed an ENCC antenna office for the region of Southeastern Europe.
The main objectives of the SE antenna are:
- connecting stakeholders around ENCC topics (citizenship, informal education, arts and culture, capacity building, social innovation) in the SEE area and addressing / debating shared topics,
- Providing a platform for the development of cooperation and transnational projects in the region;
- Identifying and connecting potential members, sustaining structuration of the sector and capacity building.
For this purpose, the process of mapping the cultural centres sector in SEE was started at the beginning of 2016.
The results of the mapping are available on this website.
If you are from the Southeastern region (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria , Croatia, Cyprus, Kosovo, Moldova, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey, Greece) and are interested in helping us gather the information about your country, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Southeast Europe (SEE) is a strategic and priority region both for the EU and for ENCC. We therefore aim to develop our connections and memberships in this area, in order to foster mutually beneficial cooperation and exchanges within an enlarged and diversified pool of members.”
Mr. Ivo Peeters
Chairman, ENCC Network
