In the course of time people and their
cultures converge, small populations
frequently lose their identity or disappear.
Baltic culture is a basis to maintain Latvian
and Lithuanian identities and development
potential of border regions. The project objective is to promote
development of the bordering Latgale (LV)
and Aukštaitija (LT) regions based on the
unique nature of regional traditional culture
values, historically rooted in the Balts culture.
The main project activities are training
seminars for culture managers and specialists
to improve their skills in culture management,
organization of cross-border culture festivals
and events, creation of the joint online
database of culture collectives that result in
increased human capacity, transfer of best
practices and closer links between culture
organizations across the border that in their
turn contribute to the attraction of more
visitors to the region and preservation of
Baltic cultural identity and culture values.
