PRESS RELEASE

The Integration and Migration Foundation ‘Our People’ (MISA) announced a project competition for the organisation of integrating sports and cultural activities that support a common field of information.

“With the competition we provide an opportunity for supporting integration in the Estonian society through cooperation activities in the field of culture and sports. We wish to foster tolerance and cooperation and support for example through performances, festivals and exhibitions that introduce different cultures or through translating children’s and youth literature,” commented Maarja Mänd, a coordinator of the Multicultural Education Unit of MISA.

“In addition, with this competition we also support mass or team sport events that involve people of different national and cultural backgrounds,” added Mänd.

In total, 64,400 euros are granted as project assistance. The deadline for the submission of project applications is 28 April.
