Abstract [en]

Present contribution to 12th Conference “European Culture”, Spain, Barcelona on 24‐26 October 2013 aims to describe how to identify relevant cultural differences and their impact on cross‐border projects. It is a problem that the participants’ different cultural backgrounds in a project often lead to misinterpretations and deadlocks. Therefore, the research question deals with how participants in creative processes can identify relevant cultural differences as well as their impact on cross‐border projects. This appears important in order to prevent the processes of creative, intercultural projects from halting or even a collapse. The description will be based on an analysis of reflections made by participants in an intercultural border‐crossing project, financed by the European Regional Development Fund and European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument.
