Three UK-led projects awarded 'success story' status

Three UK-led Culture projects have cause to celebrate after being designated with special 'success story' status. Two of these projects were led by Wales-based organisations.

Success stories are projects that enjoyed exceptional results in terms of policy relevance, communication potential, impact or design. They are selected by an expert panel from a wider pool of good practice examples.

"An impressive 14 of the 33 success stories contain UK partners"

Out of 738 funded projects that were assessed, only 33 were chosen to receive this highly regarded status. An impressive 14 of the 33 success stories contained UK partners

The three UK-led success stories are:

1. Dance Roads Open Process

Led by Cardiff-based Chapter/Coreo Cymru, with partners in Italy, France and Austria, Dance Roads Open Process (DROP) included promoter platforms, artists residencies, mentoring programmes and commissioned a mapping study of cross-border dance networks in Europe.

2. European Prospects

European Prospects was a 24-month project involving a collaboration between key arts organisations in Wales, Germany, Lithuania and France to create new platforms for photographers from across Europe to produce and exhibit their work. The project was led by Ffotogallery.

3. Community Oriented Art and Social Transformation

Led by acta Community Theatre in Bristol, Community Oriented Art and Social Transformation involved four professional community theatre organisations in four European countries. It worked with participants from host and migrant communities to create original theatre on the theme of crossing borders. 

The successful projects were all part of the Cooperation Measures strand of the previous Culture programme, which ran from 2007-2013.
