SUMMARY

The project seeks to enhance co-operation and cultural exchange through joint activities primarily focused on the local music industry. With the main objective to increase the interaction among musicians and other artists the project will contribute to raising tolerance among multi-ethnic communities in the target area. The project will organise 20 concerts performed jointly by artists from the two countries to stimulate new and revive traditional cross-border connections.

RESULTS

1. 22 concerts were organised in 11 towns in Bosnia and Herzegovina and 10 in Serbia with plausible local media attention in around 30 media with 4 live streamings. 2. People-to-people interaction between the two countries for musicians, partner organisations and audience. 3. An orignal music piece "The Drina Cantana - Drino, vodo" containing ethno motives from East Bosnia and Herzegovina and West Serbia was composed and performed in the concerts.
