|Policies for Culture Media Initiative 2002/2003
By the end of 2002, Policies for Culture initiated a broad media collaboration project in the countries of South East Europe. 10 magazines and newspapers in 8 SEE countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia) published cultural policy dossiers and specific supplements in one of their regular issues. The initiative made texts and publications prepared by the Policies for Culture network and its guest writers available in the local languages of South East Europe and thereby encouraged dissemination of cultural policy expertise to a broad range of readers throughout the entire region.
The aim of this initiative was to bring current challenges and approaches in SEE cultural policy development to the attention of a wider audience but also to develop closer working relationships with media institutions in the participating countries.
All SEE magazines and newspapers supported by this Policies for Culture media initiative are listed below. Most of the cultural policy dossiers and supplements published so far are also available online:
