The project was implemented to activate the cultural life and stimulate cultural exchange in the Estonian-Latvian border area. It mainly targeted Alūksne and Valka districts in Latvia and Valga, Võru and Põlva counties in Estonia. Part of the activities were especially focused on people with disabilities.
Altogether around 3000 participants from both countries participated in various singing and dancing events organized in Smiltene, Alūksne, Valka, Valga, Jaunanna, Sõmerpalu, Põlva, Parksepa, Misso, Paistu. Thanks to the project, people from small villages and remote boder areas were given the feeling of participation in cross-border activities, and many of them have established new contacts and friendships. Various amateur groups are continuing the cooperation also beyond the project.
