European Cultural Community
ACTE’s object is to build a European Cultural Community, based on the principles of cooperation, equity, cultural innovation and reinvesting in youth and the social fabric of local communities.
ACTE is creating a network, an electronic platform, which will link all stakeholders and provide for exchange of products, services and information on both a local and international level. It will give the ACTE community privileged access to cultural and commercial exchanges on international markets. Where?
European Wine Community
We have started building our community along and around the wine or vine routes that are traced across the European continent. We begin here because vine routes are prolific and are the seat of some of the most important European culture. Vine/Wine routes link communities across political frontiers in a common cultural history, a common passion, rich traditions, and a strong cultural identity.
Vine routes constitute a common European cultural heritage and are a worthy place to begin to build ‘European community’ around. Who will be involved?
ACTE is building the European cultural/wine community with you. Anyone who wants to engage in creating an international project, based on the value of community, can get involved. All individuals, local communities, wine makers, cultural institutions, tourism operators, service providers, cultural actor’s, research institutes, and any other interested party can register, log in and begin building the community.
ACTE wants to give you the tools to get directly involved. One of these tools is “OD-E” the network exchange between Diaspora communities. “OD-E” creates peer-to-peer cooperation, enabling people to engage directly in project development in the country of their choice. There are many other exciting ways to engage. How?
How can you engage?
Create a community identity. Put yourself or your business on the ACTE community map. Go to your country map, find your region, your towns or village and put yourself on the map. What do you do? Put this on the map under business or activity. What exists in your community? Theatres, festivals, heritage? You can map anything of interest to a visitor, anything that makes your community special.
Create a European project of your own through OD -E. Develop a capacity Building programme in your area: see Training Join a forum share your ideas on building our European community. Create an ACTE in your community.
