Spring and autumn events both side of the Drava river
Start date: Apr 28, 2011,
End date: Mar 28, 2012
The purpose of this project is educating the younger generations about the importance of preservation and transmission of traditional culture (songs, dances, folk costumes, jewellery) in the area on both banks of the river Drava, and to preserve the old and establish new friendships between the parties involved in this project through the organisation of cultural events on both sides of the programme area. The main objective of the project is to organise a sustainable cross-border community which is able to help the approach of two nations in the context of European integrations. Achievements: In order to bring closer the people living on the two sides of the river Drava and to work on creating a joint European future based on the shared cultural heritage, a number of joint cultural events were organised within the project, including the annual Drava Spring festival, held on both sides of the border. The festival included a cooking competition, a sporting event and a number of music and dance performances. Two venues for cultural events were renovated during the project to serve the communities in their future joint events.
