The EliCCon-Project aims to explore the rich cultural diversity of Europe and raise awareness about its high value for our common life. It is co-financed by the european programme Erasmus Plus and also contributes to the European Year of Cultural Heritage (Sharing Heritag) 2018+1. Increasing the awareness of the european rich cultural heritage contributes to the development of a shared identity in Europe. The EliCCon-project enables the partners to share information about their cultures and lived cultural heritage (like values, traditions, customs and habits) by organizing meetings and exhibitions in the countries where the partners come from.
The partners of the project are: ALVIT from Ostrava (Czech Republic), Europäische Fotoakademie from Rastatt (Germany), Inercia Digital from Huelva (Spain) and Praxis Europe from Birmingham (UK). The project has started in October 2018 and until now the partners have organized two exhibitions, in Spain at the University of Huelva (May 2019) and in the United Kingdom in the South and City College Birmingham.
