Self-government for TCN, TCN for self-government: Culture

What is the role of municipality in promoting culture? What kind of local institutions are involved in the area of culture? What are the options for foreigners to present their culture in Košice? Do foreigners participate to cultural events? Do they organize cultural events?

The Foundation of Milan Šimečka organized meeting on 26. June 2019 in one of the Košice independent culture centre Tabačka. Various NGOs including ETP Slovakia were tackling the above mentioned issues when discussing with representatives of public institutions, culture activists and TCN communities.

There are several initiatives running currently and some others are about to be held in coming months (e.g. Potulka within INTEGRA project, festival [fju:žn] organized by NMŠ, folklore festivals or culture performances in Tabačka). Having TCN representing Vietnameese, Mongolian, Ukrainian, Afgani or Syrian communities present on the meeting opened the opportunity to get to know each other personally and establish cooperation.
