The project aims to reinforce the professional abilities of the cultural agents from the Dominican Republic and Haiti and, thus, improve the economic incidence in the cultural sector in both countries and in the Caribbean region, and increase the cultural dialogue among all these regions. To achieve this, the creation of an information and advisory Centre was proposed so as to make the cultural figures more professional. The headquarters would be in the Dominican Republic with a satellite office in Haiti and other areas in the Caribbean. A programme of training Courses for cultural agents was also proposed to aid this professionalization. Lastly, there would be a Meeting of European and Caribbean professionals from the sector. The project is to last 2 years (2012-2013) and is coordinated by Multilateral, in association with two local partners: the Dominican Network of Local Cultures (RED CULTURAL), from the Dominican Republic, and the Volontariat pour le Developpement d’Haiti organisation. The initiative is funded by the European Union through the Investment in people programme and the Cultural Programme of the Eastern Association: Reinforce abilities in the cultural sector, which provides a total of €260 thousand.
