We are sure that nowadays in the era of “living in network” highlighting true opportunities of real life becomes more and more important. Everyone can afford it regardless of dwelling place, age, social status, profession and other peculiarities. And this enhances life quality. We have had firsthand knowledge of this and now would like to find allies in the region of Europe which we are hardly acquainted with (as well as they are hardly acquainted with ours). It will be useful communication for both parties that will influence positively on cultural relations between creative initiatives in European provinces.
