The objective of the project is to empower communities to solve their problems by doing things together using resources that they already have.
Within the project Dusetos and Krāslava municipalities will share creative ideas and best practices in an upcycling (which is transforming or reinventing disposable item into something of higher quality) conceptual seminar and a study visit to Sweden, together will organize trainings for crafting in different fields (as woodwork, textiles, furniture decoration, crocheting, welding, plastic work, glasswork and etc.), together will organize ”up crafting” festivals in Zarasai and Kraslava for wider public of the cross-border region, where by-products, waste materials, useless or unwanted products will be used for “upcrafting”. During community regeneration initiative volunteer teams will repaint 20 of buildings in poor condition and develop 10 cozy public spaces in Dusetos and Krāslava towns thus improving not only the environment but also atmosphere of the area. The creativity of artists and artisans will be celebrated in Christmas fairs, held in both partner towns – Dusetos and Krāslava.
