About Atlantic CultureScape

Atlantic CultureScape launched in July 2019, bringing together seven partners to collectively develop intangible cultural heritage (ICH) experiences that will boost the tourism offer across the Atlantic Area. The project will identify what ICH each country has, carry out research and work with local businesses to enhance their local ICH offers. In the final stages of the project an ICH Atlantic Area Route will be marketed to visitors across the Atlantic Area. A major part of Interreg projects concern is transnational partners coming together to achieve a common goal.

The project is co-financed by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme through the European Regional Development Fund.
