The project LLB-1-104 "Promotion of neighbourhood cooperation and cultural diversity between creative communities of Druskininkai and Grodno" ends.

The project LLB-1-104 "Promotion of neighbourhood cooperation and cultural diversity between creative communities of Druskininkai and Grodno", implemented within the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument 2007-2013 Cross Border Cooperation Programme Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus, ends.

Thanks to the project, the two border cities of Lithuania and Belarus lived to one cultural rhythm for 1 year. The partners encouraged the involvement of community members in transborder cultural activities. The Belarusian days of culture were organised in Druskininkai, attracting over 200 performers from Grodno. The woodsmen plain air collected together Lithuanian and Belarusian artists. 9 sculptures created during the plain air were erected in the squares of Latezeris and Vieciunai settlements of Druskininkai municipality.

The crafts atelier was set up and partially equipped in Vieciunai, where education programmes, exhibitions and festivals will be held. The video art studio opened at Druskininkai centre of culture, where the lessons of photography, video art, multimedia and audio-video production are held. The Druskininkai Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis school of arts has equipped its animation, music making and computer graphics classes. This enabled the school to launch modern art lessons. Over 100 children attended these classes in 2012. The artistic children from Druskininkai and Grodno took part in a creative summer school in Druskininkai in 2012.

Druskininkai city museum cooperated with the National history archive in Grodno in collecting the information about the establishment of the Druskininkai SPA resort. Valuable documents were found in the Belarusian archives and copied.

An exhibition of graphic art of the Belarusian virtuoso Yuriy Yakovenko was open to the inhabitants and guests of Druskininkai in the premises of the Druskininkai municipal library.

The cultural institutions of Grodno also bought modern equipment and instruments. Over 2000 spectators came to the concert of Druskininkai artists in Grodno. The bilateral woodsmen plain air was also held in Grodno.
