Cooperation Agreement


signed on 4 September 2002 in Sejny between:

The issues of the multicultural heritage, at the meeting point of nations and religions, identities and tolerance, gain enormously in importance in the present world. In our region of the world, an additional element is the process of the unification of Europe whose full rights member Poland has become recently. Our cultural traditions should not only be preserved, but also account for an essential contribution in the work of integration and contemporary development of Europe. 
"Borderland” from its very beginnings of its existence has dealt with theses problems and has acquired in this sphere wide experience and opportunities. The present situation demands the initiated in the small Sejny activities be dynamically developed and radiate to other regions and countries, continuing and simultaneously promoting worldwide the Polish and Lithuanian Commonwealth traditions of tolerance. 
To maintain the idea and development of Borderland and to face the challenges standing in front of our culture and education in the period of economic and social transformation and to ensure a high position of the Polish initiative in the sphere of multiculturalism on the European and world stage, indispensable seems a type of partnership based on an intensive cooperation of two institutions linked by convergent aims and statutory tasks: the Centre „Borderland of Arts Cultures and Nations” and Borderland Foundation.
