The Open Method of Coordination Working Group (OMC) of the European Commission selcted NiCer project as an excellent example which illustrates the way in which the arts can contribute to the integration of migrants and refugees.

The OMC group has the mandate to explore the ways in which culture and the arts can help to bring individuals and peoples together, increase their participation in cultural and societal life as well as to promote intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity (priority in EU’s 2015-2018 Work Plan for Culture).

Participating experts took stock of the existing good practices on intercultural dialogue with a special focus on the integration of migrants and refugees in societies through the arts and culture.
