Culture for cities and regions is a €1 million project funded under the Creative Europe programme.
The aim of the programme is to take stock of existing practices all over Europe, whilst exchanging and promoting a transfer of knowledge. The hope is that this will help create a better understanding of successful cases of cultural investment. The programme will also go into the details of policy planning and implementation.
By making sure that cities and regions involved in the project place culture at the heart of their territorial development strategies, the programme is aiming for long lasting results that will be widely shared and showcased widely in Europe.
The project has so far support 5 study visits to share knowledge between cultural practitioners across Europe. The latest took place in Dundee on 18 November. Participants from museums and other cultural organisations from ten European cities and regions spent three days exchanging on the main drivers and processes behind Dundee’s creative dynamics as part of the 5th study visit for the #cultureforcitiesregions project.

A second call for participants in thematic study visits on culture taking place from February to April 2016. The deadline is the 4th December and more information can be found here.
