Thaqafa Daayer Maydoor (All-Around Culture) is a 4-year EU-funded regional programme (ENI Southern Neighbourhood) that fosters a cultural ecosystem as an enabling environment for the social and economic inclusion of young people. It does so by supporting cultural institutions, initiatives and individuals to strengthen their capacities and increase their reach through funding, knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. The programme will build on the long lasting partner experience as well as previous EU-supported actions like Med Culture.
