Norden Balkan Culture Switch: An Evaluation
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2005 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The Norden - Balkan - Culture - Switch 2003- 2005 is a series of artistic and cultural exchanges between the countries in Western Balkan and the Nordic countries supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The programme focused on young professionals in both regions and during the years 2003- 2005 more than 35 projects were carried out. This evaluation is based on the exchange programmes, and more specifically on a screening of the programmes for Literature, Music and Visual arts.In the realm of cultural projects there is a tendency to focus exclusively on the achieved results, without necessarily taking into account aims, processes, resources and perhaps most of all long-term effects. The criteria of success usually applied are audience appeal, budget balancing as well as media coverage among others, These are all significant factors, but if an appraisal of cultural project is to offer a broader perspective in terms of justifying the amount of resources spent on the projects, it must approach the actors and the processes themselves.This evaluation has focused on parameters related to aims and expectations, management and communications processes. The results, conclusions and recommendations point at important aspects to be taken into considerations in future project planning, including approaches for monitoring management and communications processes.
