Dance knows no border - Arrangement of Hungarian - Croatian dance festivals
Start date: Apr 23, 2011,
End date: Sep 22, 2011
In the frame of the project two two-day folk dance festivals are organized by the project partners, including fish-soup cooking competition and an artisan fair. The events aim at presenting the common cultural heritage as well as individual differences and specificities to the inhabitants of the region, building on the already close co-operation between the participant settlements. The culture and heritage based events have the long-term goal of improving the culture-based tourism potential of the region and the popularisation of bilingualism. Achievements: The project was based on ten years of close co-operation of the two twin towns, this time within a cross-border co-operation programme. The main goal was to establish connections among the population of the two sides of the border through the joint organisation of cultural events. A number of joint events was held, emphasising the mutual respect for the joint heritage, including a joint folklore dance festival on both sides of the border. The successful implementation laid the foundations for further joint eff orts.
