culture link
across the continents

When a 21st century vision travels across the continents …
… countries unite in partnership to share knowledge and innovation for cultural exchange


East Meets West in Greece is a new initiative to link the countries of Asia with Europe in Greece under a DIGITAL CULTURAL HERITAGE umbrella that delivers results.


Actions represent the strong commitment of EMWG to support the initiative through strategic cooperations and funding.


Two very enriching projects open new horizons in cultural exchange with great appeal to both the Chinese and European audiences.
