Many SDC activities in the fields of culture and migration overlap, pursue similar objectives, are aimed at the same target groups or complement each other. The smARTspace project culture & migration focuses on such connections and intends to identify and strengthen their added value for sustainable development. Designed as SDC-internal learning and exchange process, the one-year project is based on three assumptions regarding the interlinkage of culture and migration: 1) Culture is a right and part of personal identities of migrants – the promotion of culture and art can foster the participation and inclusion of migrants 2) Culture and art can contribute to a positive public perception of migration and to social cohesion 3) Migration can bring both, opportunities and challenges for culture and arts promotion
