Culture and Development: Action and Impact

14 January 2011

The Belgian Presidency of the European Union and the European Commission have published a compilation of projects financed by international development agencies that provide a strong confirmation of the potential of culture for achieving the Millennium Development Goals, established by the United Nations. The publication, entitled “Culture and Development: Action and Impact”, is also a brief overview of actions undertaken by the EU Member States. Among the projects selected for this publication, there are two projects carried out by Interarts: the programme of Promotion of Cultural and Creative Industries – FOMECC and the project on cultural instruments in order to reinforce the knowledge on sexual and reproductive health of young people in the informal sector in Mopti, Mali.
