CULTUREMAKERS is a Cultural Intelligence skill-developing project, empowering local and refugee youth from remote socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds in Greece, to create films that future-proof the Internationalisation of European Culture by fostering shared peacebuilding Values across the Region and steering communities away from radicalisation.

CULTUREMAKERS future-proof the Internationalisation profile of European Culture by producing films showcasing local heritage & traditions, whilst simultaneously improving well-being, acquiring cultural intelligence skills and increasing their 21st Century resilience.

The films are distributed to cultural institutions, governments and civil society actors, tackling shared challenges on the Internationalisation of Culture across the Region.
