About apap - advancing performing arts project

apap – advancing performing arts project is an international network of 11 cultural organisations from all over Europe.

The apap-network has been established in 2000, since then implementing several programmes with the support of the EU Cultural programs successfully.

The current  project, apap-performing Europe 2020, is proudly supported by “Creative Europe" a Programme of the European Union” and it is implemented throughout a four-years period (2016 – 2020).
