Transcultura: Integrating Cuba, Caribbean & EU Through Culture and Creativity

The Transcultura programme intends to deepen integration between Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union. It aims to harness diversity and build bridges between people and cultures from different linguistic areas.

Budget: €12,8 million

The programme is built on two components:

1) Focus on strengthening the skills and capacities of young cultural professionals

2) Focus on enhancing opportunities through knowledge transfer and exchanges

This will be achieved through the establishment of a regional Cultural Training Hub in Cuba, linked to relevant Caribbean institutions and supported by scholarships to facilitate mobility. The Programme will create opportunities for entrepreneurship, socio-economic projects and collaboration in the cultural and creative sectors, heritage and tourism within the Caribbean region and with the EU.
