Task Force "Cross-Border Culture" - T4CBC

The T4CBC is one of the Task Forces of the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR: www.aebr.eu). 

For the T4CBC Cultural actors of European border regions are at the heart of its initiative, as well as their projects and networks.

The will of the T4CBC is  to open up the potential of Multiculturalism, which is indisputably one of the most fruitful fields for innovative thinking because it boosts the discovery of unique concepts and solutions in all areas, and Multiculturalism is particularly available in border regions.

The aim of the T4CBC is to generate a new dimension for the European cultural networks that goes beyond the usual meetings and conferences and integrates the realization of concrete European projects. 

The T4CBC wants to promote cross-border cultural cooperation within and between the border regions of Europe by enhancing the collaboration between creative people (artists, designers, architects, ...) and the cultural actors (representatives of cultural organizations, administrations and networks) in specific cross-border and trans-European projects.

The implementation of this project should be boosted and supported by the close collaboration with the European Capitals of Culture and other networks that, similar to the AEBR network, are composed by policy makers or representatives of cultural administrations and organizations, like SMart, The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe, Audiences Europe,  LIKE-Culture, Serra Henriques Fondation, Cultural Space Greater Region,
