SOSTENUTO project – Cooperation of NGO and public sectors in developing local cultural strategies in Boka Kotorska Bay

The Sostenuto project deals with experimenting, modelling and disseminating within the Med space and beyond new forms of organizations and management in the cultural sector.
It is conducted by seven partners from the MED region:
- AMI-Aide aux Musiques Innovatrices, FRANCE, the lead partner
- University of Valencia, SPAIN
- Bunker, SLOVENIA
- Zunino e Partner Progetti, ITALY
- Relais Culture Europe, FRANCE
- Expeditio, MONTENEGRO

In Montenegro, Sostenuto is aimed at improving cooperation between institutions and organizations in the field of culture in Boka Kotorska and creating a “Platform for the cultural strategy of Boka Kotorska” through participatory process which involves different stakeholders related to the field of culture.
The process uses different tools to engage stakeholders (NGO, private and public sectors, cultural institutions, independent cultural scene, amateur associations, youth, media, individuals, etc.): workshops/focus groups, individual interviews, local media, telephone surveys, websites, etc.

The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance and managed in Montenegro by the Delegation of the European Union.
