Painting Sombor in European colors

The Interreg IPA CBC Programme Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020 is celebrating European Cooperation Day 2018 with an event dedicated to children. Children from two homes for children from Croatia and Serbia will spend the day playing and painting, watching theatre shows and sharing fun experiences. The event will take place on 17 October 2018 in Sombor, Serbia.

Following this year’s artistic theme of the EC Day, we are organizing an event in which children can learn about cooperation in the European Union, creatively express their thoughts and have fun. Teamed up with a street artist, children facilitators and a face painter, our very own cross-border art collective will create a wall mural in Sombor.

The event aims to gather experiences on what it’s like growing up in a border region, what kids think of each other’s countries and to provide a playground for rediscovering our neighboring cultures. This is why the mural will reflect motifs unique to this part of Europe and tell a story of cooperation between Croatia and Serbia.

Participation is limited to children of the two homes for children that are participating at the EC Day.

The event in Sombor is organized by the Managing Authority of the Interreg IPA CBC Programme Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020, in cooperation with the National Authorities: Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds of the Republic of Croatia and Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia.
