Med Culture is a 5-year (2014-2019) regional programme funded by the European Union to accompany partner countries in south of the Mediterranean in the development and improvement of cultural policies and practices related to the culture sector. The approach is consultative/participative and takes place in partnership with civil society actors, ministries, private and public institutions involved in culture as well as other related sectors.
Capacity development at regional level (between stakeholders from the Southern side of the Mediterranean sea), is a Med Culture core activity that provides cultural practitioners working in different cultural fields, both from the civil society and public sectors, with the opportunity to discuss common challenges and share experiences with their peers in the involved South Mediterranean countries.
The proposed action is in line with the revised European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), adopted in November 2015, which places special emphasis on supporting civil society and promoting citizen participation and engagement, focusing especially on young women and men.
