En route with various partners
As for the organisation and realisation of the arts trail, Leiedal can rely on the joint support of various complementary partners. Some interventions are co-financed by Europe through the Interreg project DESIGN’IN supporting design methods for public space. Lining up with Kortrijk Design Region, we can go all in for creativity and international appeal. The Interreg project SHARE-North offers the framework for providing shared bikes. On a Flemish level, Contrei Live can look to considerable back-up, both logistically and financially, by De Vlaamse Waterweg (Flemish Waterways). Westtoer and Toerisme Leiestreek are also firmly on board with a strong added value in the field of recreational tourism know-how. The 13 local authorities will be backing the projects chiefly in logistics and communications. In-house health partner Logo Leieland steps up with walking loops, while culture organisation zuidwest looks for links with local cultural events. True to its strong affinity with arts, Belgian bank Belfius did not hesitate to sponsor Contrei Live.
