With the 31 March 2015 the “Regional Monitoring and Capacity Building Unit” project under the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme has reached its end and it`s time for us to say good-bye.
We would like to thank all of our friends and colleagues, partners, supporters, participants, service-providers, and everybody in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine that belongs to the arts and culture sector or that have an interest in the arts and culture sector and that supported, contributed or participated in the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme since its beginning until today.
March 31, 2015 The euoreastculture.eu website after 31 March 2015 Starting from the 1st of April, the Programme FB page will be managed by the new team of the new phase of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme. Enjoy the new opportunities!
The Programme website of the first programme phase run by the RMCBU will continue to be available with all documents and materials produced by the RMCBU within the last four years. There will be some last documents that will be published in the coming weeks, essentially the updating annexes to our Country Base-Line Reports on Trends of the Culture Sector and Cultural Policies and some documents from grant projects that are not ready yet.
March 31, 2015 RMCBU: Let’s talk figures for once We have mostly been talking content over the last four years; allow us to talk a bit of figures related to our communication tools on the occasion of the end of the RMCBU project.
The figures illustrate the attention that the EaP Culture Programme has received in the EaP countries, but also in Europe and even all across the planet.
March 28, 2015 The RMCBU presents the 2nd extended edition of the MANUAL “CULTURE STRATEGY ELABORATION versus PROJECT MANAGEMENT”. The Manual “CULTURE STRATEGY ELABORATION versus PROJECT MANAGEMENT” has been developed as a practical guide for reinforcing strategic planning, no matter whether by authorities or civil society, as an indispensable component for development processes in culture and society at large. It is oriented to state and non-state actors (policy makers, civil servants, state/communal officers, public and private managers, NGOs, professional groups, private sector operators, etc.) in the EaP countries operating in the culture related sectors. It should interest those who actually or potentially are interested in identifying and contributing to the long term future perspectives and in achieving sustainable results from cultural development.
November 25, 2014 Second Regional Conference of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme "The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts – the Programme has laid the foundation for shared values across language barriers. It has established the essential basis for sustainable development by acknowledging and promoting respect for cultural diversity within community-based approaches. It has successfully demonstrated that CULTURE is a driver and also enabler for sustainable development that has the potential to contribute to societal challenges on a global scale." (abstract from the Joint Conference Position Statement)
On 05-07 November 2014 the RMCBU hold the Second Regional Conference of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme 'Facets of Culture in the Eastern Partnership: Achievements & Challenges' in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The Second Regional Conference of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme is the event that marked the end of the first phase of the EaP Culture Programme after four years of its implementation in the six countries of the Eastern Partnership: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. The Conference was attended by 134 Programme’s stakeholders who are closely related to culture and its development potential in the Eastern Partnership region and in the EU.
The Conference offered to the Programme’s stakeholders a moment of reflection and jointly working on a self-evaluation of the EaP Culture Programme. With the approach, that the Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts, the Conference tried to self-evaluate what the Programme has achieved as a whole and not that much looking at listing up all the many single achievements.
