The border area municipalities carried out a range of cultural activities to promote permanent ties and cultural exchanges between the Estonian and Latvian communities in their cross-border region.
The following joint events were organized during the project: Estonian day in Veclaicene, Day of Culture and Language in Ziemeri, Song and Dance Festival in Rõuge, Let's Sing and Dance Together! in Mārkalne and Celebration of Suur Munamägi in Haanja. These events brought together the performers from all partner municipalities, thus developing cultural cooperation among the active participants and audience in both countries. In addition, two training seminars were organized for people from partner municipalities on traditions in folk culture and image-building for cultural institutions. Partners also jointly visited Finland (Vesilahti municipality) to gain information about Finnish cultural management and establish new connections.
For improving the environment for joint cultural events, repairs and smaller renovation in local cultural centres was done (installation of electrical cable, renovation of hall, stage, windows, foyer and toilets), as well as necessary equipment obtained.
