Belarus: 04.03.2011 Free Belarus – Discover Europe

A joined project prepared by Belarus together with five EU countries: Germany, Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden and Estonia.

The project called “Free Belarus – Discover Europe” is planned for the period April-October 2011. It was conceived in response to current situation, in which any cooperation of the artists from Belarus with their European colleagues is hindered by the strict visa regime.

The coordinator of the project plans also to support initiatives aiming at waiver or facilitation of Schengen visa procedures for the citizens of Belarus, as well as Belarusian visas for the EU citizens. Belarus may use this opportunity to create a modern image and change the way it is perceived abroad.
