workers, artists, independent art producers and NGOs in the SEE Region express 
their deep 
concern 
and interest for creating trans-border networks of communication, transportation 
and cultural facilities.
The 
goal of joining and creating common networks for communication and art 
production is:
 
/   To establish conditions for a 
functioning art market
/  To facilitate artist mobility and 
exchange of production and presentation of art work
/  To enhance the awareness of local, 
regional and common problems as well as resources
/  To work for a establishment of an open 
platform for funding the development of 
independent art production 
/  To support curatorial workshops and 
educational projects in the arts
