“The Greenhouse” , a platform for artistic experimentation in Casablanca’s public space, Morocco; “Go Pro”, incubator of artistic activities implemented in Palestine; and “Sail”, cultural project dealing with reintegration of Tunisian under-age children with legal problems, are the three projects that obtained the highest marks in the evaluation process of the first call for proposals of Southmed CV. Together with those three, other sixteen projects from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon and Palestine have been selected according to the marks resulting from the evaluation process. All projects reflect the need to both reinforce the recognition of culture as a factor in local, national and regional development, as well as enhance the professional capacities of operators, practitioners and organisations active in this field in the Southern Mediterranean. It is expected for all projects to start early 2016, and implemented until August.
