Cultural Co-operation

Cultural Co-operation (CC) is a charity. It was formed in 1987 in order to promote intercultural contact, dialogue and understanding. It does this through a programme of not-for-profit public activities that encourage learning about and participation in the world’s diverse cultural heritage.

The programme comprises 5 activity strands:

A Festival showcase (FS): the Music Village Festival, a free admission summer event that creates a safe and welcoming public “contact zone” for learning and about and celebrating world cultures.

An Artist Network (AN): this encourages cross-community creative collaborations between creative practitioners of diverse national and faith origin now living in London; it additionally provides network members with professional support to connect them and other excluded artists to one another and to the mainstream.

A year-round Education & Training Programme (E&T): this offers immersive learning in arts, heritage and citizenship skills in schools, museums & the workplace

Dialogue & Debate (D&D): seminars and conferences to generate understanding and trust between people of different national descent an/or religious belief through structured engagement with complex intercultural and interfaith issues.

Policy & Consultancy (P&C): that provides professional advice to official bodies, mainstream organisations and community groups in the form of analysis, reflection and insight into our diverse origins, distinctive world views and common values.
