The first online platform for promoting MoldArte.eu cultural actors was launched in the Republic of Moldova. It will promote Moldovan artists both nationally and internationally, will connect them with other international artists, and will also provide a space for communication for people of culture, without borders, according to a press release from the Ministry of Culture, quoted by IPN.

The materials will be part of the media section of the platform and will be distributed as podcasts. The program will also include documentary visits by invited EU experts, curators, gallery owners, directors of institutions, who will meet with experts from the Republic of Moldova to develop cross-border projects.
